    Former bishops found guilty in decades-long B.C. polygamy case

    CRANBROOK, B.C. -- Two former bishops of an isolated religious commune in British Columbia have been found guilty of practising polygamy after a decades-long legal fight launched by the provincial government.


    Both Blackmore and Oler remain out on bail. Crown spokesman Dan McLaughlin said that the maximum sentence for a conviction of polygamy is five years in prison.


    Uncertainty over whether the Criminal Code section banning polygamy violated religious rights hovered over the case until 2011 when the B.C. Supreme Court ruled the law was constitutional and that polygamy is a crime.
    A constitutional reference case heard that the harms of polygamy outweigh any claims to freedom of religion and include physical and sexual abuse, child brides, the subjugation of women, and the expulsion of young men, the so-called lost boys, who have no women left to marry.
