On the Season 4 premiere of Escaping Polygamy, “Exposing the Cult,” sisters Andrea, 27, and Jessica Kingston, 29, get a call from their younger sister, Jennifer, who is still living in the polygamist group known as The Order (aka the Kingston Clan) in Salt Lake City. Jennifer says she’s being forced to marry someone she doesn’t love. Their father is Daniel Kingston, a longtime member of The Order. (As young teenagers, with the help of an aunt, Andrea and Jessica were able to escape from The Order; and a court eventually found their father and his sixth wife Heidi Mattingly Foster “abusive and neglectful” and they relinquished their parental rights to both daughters.) Now Andrea and Jessica devise a plan that will hopefully get Jennifer out of town before The Order finds out.
Escaping Polygamy promotes Andrea (who’s using the surname Brewer) as a lawyer in Seattle, Washington. But she doesn’t just play a lawyer on TV. According to the Washington State Bar Association, Andrea Brewer does have her license to practice law, as of October 17, 2017. She is currently working as an associate attorney with the law firm Smith Alling in Tacoma, Washington. Escaping Polygamy airs Mondays at 10pm on Lifetime.
