Two leaders of a fundamentalist group who between them have 29 wives and 160 children were sentenced to house arrest on Tuesday after being convicted of polygamy.
Winston Blackmore, 61, was found guilty last year of having 24 wives while James Oler, 53, was found guilty of having five wives. Blackmore has 149 kids, the Star Vancouver reported.
Blackmore's six-month conditional sentence, to be served under house arrest, allows him to go to work and deal with medical emergencies. Oler's term is three months of house arrest. Both face 12 months of probation. Blackmore was also ordered to perform 150 hours of community service work, while Oler must do 75 hours.

This experiment with Islam is not going to end well.
“Some of the men’s wives, for example, were as young as 15 when they were married.”
Sick, sick, sick.
Probably drawing welfare and food stamps on all of them.
“2 men with 29 wives and 160 children between them sentenced to house arrest...”
They probably wanted jail time so they could have some peace.
“Probably drawing welfare and food stamps on all of them.”
The term is “Welfare King.”
Probably worse than prison
House arrest! Yeah, that’ll work! You stay in your bedroom, you bad boy, hear??
Well, that’s pretty stupid.
They are just going to make more of them
I am reminded of Oscar Wilde: “Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same.”
The nagging! Oi!
EBT pays that, yes?
I read some time ago one man was designated by the system as having one wife. This is because according to Canadian law one cannot legally have more than one wife. At the time his 14 other "wives" were classed as single women. Each drew welfare for a single woman. I understand all were under one roof and handed their money to him.
No damn justice!
They probably run the family like a money making venture.
Wow that is infuriating.
How many wives does Romney have?
Lgbtq should be protesting.
