Whether he was arrested for polygamy or bigamy and how many wives he had at the time seems to depend where you look.|
The information from the history Channel lists three books in their bibliography. I suspect you are more likely to get a correct answer from a book rather than the Internet.
The exact number of his wives-still a contested figure-and the extent of his fortune were the objects of curiosity and idle rumor nationwide.
In his old age, he was arrested on charges of polygamy and murder, but he was acquitted and his influence increased rather than diminished until his death.
1872 - Brigham Young is arrested for bigamy (25 wives).
