VANCOUVER - The British Columbia government has cleared the way for a special prosecutor to lay polygamy charges linked to the RCMP investigation in the southeastern B.C. community of Bountiful.

Peter Wilson was appointed by the province's criminal justice branch earlier this year to examine possible charges related to the movement of teen brides across the U.S. border to marry much older men.

Transporting young girls accross the border to marry old men is what is going to sink these people. The court has said that bigamy
does more harm than good to the women and children involved.

I think their acquittal made them cocky. Sure, they can't be charged for the previous crimes again, but if they commit new ones...

... this practice of funneling cash to (supposedly) independent attorneys to prosecute crimes when the bc government already employs countless prosecuters is ludicrous ...
