Kimberly Cooper, Real Life Wedding Crasher, Faces Jail Time For Her Actions at Charles and Sciara Daugherty's Wedding Update 11-6



According to a new study, "The sex lives of women with red hair were clearly more active than those with other hair color, with more partners and having sex more often than the average," Habermehl told London's Daily Mail. "The research shows that the fiery redhead certainly lives up to her reputation."

Wedding Crasher, Kimberly Cooper apparently can also be a lot of fun but she is not a red head. Kim is a good looking brunette with apparently some questionable morals. Kim Cooper and her daughter, not only crashed Charles Daugherty and Sciara Daugherty's wedding, Kim also apparently made off with their basket of gift cards. The Idaho couple's wedding reception was video taped and the uninvited guest's presence well documented. Police were also able to secure video from the merchants where she attempted to cash the gift cards.

While she may not be a red head, Legal Pub bets that she remains fun at parties and receptions- just keep her away from the gifts.
The video interview from CNN is linked here: video

Update 10-6-07 Reader/poster "Viking" apparently gave Legal Pub readers personal knowledge and insight into Kim Cooper's past. Mainstream media has followed Viking's information and apparently confirmed it to be accurate.
On 10-3-06, six-month-old Jayden Schneider died at Kimberly Cooper's at-home day-care. (Jayden had a skull fracture - after Cooper apparently neglected to tell anyone that Jayden fell off a bed a week earlier.) Cooper was apparently not charged and the death was ruled as sudden unexplained infant death. Cooper was cited for operating a day-care without a license. Weeks later, a 5-year-old suffered third-degree burns from scalding water at Cooper's home. Cooper was charged with injury to a child.
On April 25, 2007, Judge Mark Riddoch sentenced her after the Bonneville County prosecutor agreed to a plea. Marty Anderson, Kristi Schneider's attorney says Ms. Schneider was allowed to speak at Cooper's sentencing. Judge Mark Riddoch gave her 60 days in jail and ordered her to not watch any children for two years. Cooper's attorney filed an appeal stating it was error to allow Jayden's mother to testify because she had nothing to do with the scalding injury. Judge Gregory Anderson ordered Cooper out of jail only 12 days into her 60-day sentence. So Cooper can continue watching children until further order of the court.

Update 10-9: The power of the media and the web is undeniable. Thanks to poster FRATBOY, VIKING and LocalNews8-Idaho, we know Kim Cooper spent six months in jail for doing the same thing at the Nowlin Wedding in Jackson, Wyoming. Regina and Buddy Nowlin recognized Cooper because she stole hundreds of dollars worth of gifts from their wedding. Cooper apparently also forged checks at Smith's, a store where both Regina and Cooper worked. Cooper was charged with forgery and petty larceny and spent six months in jail. She repaid the Nowlins nearly $500. Charges are also pending against Cooper in Jefferson County for allegedly crashing another wedding.

Update 11-6: You can take away the "alleged." Kim Cooper has plead guilty to burglary concerning the Daugherty wedding.

Update 12-11: Kim Cooper has been sentenced to 45 days in jail plus pay fines. Good luck rehabbing, Kimmie

Wow, is it really true about red heads? If so does it apply to men or just woman.

Kim Cooper may be "fun" but she is also a thief if the allegations are true. Even if she needed the money, this is not the way to support your self or your family. Kim, what could you possibly be thinking?

Hey Shell, maybe you would be more fun if you died your hair? Just suggesting...

Jill said...

Is anyone else bothered by this? Was this life imitating art? In the Wedding Crashers movie, it encouraged people to break the law. It is a small step from crashing to stealing in my view as "eating food and drinking" when uninvited is in fact stealing. So if you do that, why not grab the gift cards too...

Lighten up Jill. Most hot woman like Kim are "welcome guests" at most weddings as there always seems to be a shortage of hot dance partners at receptions that I attend.

The chick livened up the reception!

Groom Charles Dougherty says, "She acted like she fit in with everybody, she introduced herself to some of our family members, helped decorate the car, helped herself to the wedding cake before we cut it ourselves."

Cooper is seen in a picture with other wedding guests at the wedding.

Later in the wedding tape Cooper's daughter is seen dancing up a storm just feet away from Charles.

That is a woman who is the life of the party. I would like her to give me a call when she gets out of the slammer!

She is not so cool. Her daughter apparently did the dirty work for her.

According to the police report Cooper had her 12 year old daughter take the cards.

In a police interview the young girl says she did not want to, but her mom forced her.

Give her a break. It is not like she is some hardened criminal.
Kimberly Cooper is an Idaho Falls resident. She was charged last year with injury to a child and operating a daycare without a license. Not exactly a felon.

Idaho Hunter said...

She seems like a common criminal to me. Let me take a shot at showing her some justice!

Idaho Hunter,

Come on, up until her daughter took the cards, they look like they are the life of the party from the video.

I used to date Kim back in the day. The chick was psychotic, I broke it off when I moved out of state and the next thing I know she calls me from the airport. As far as anonymous #2 she doesn't deserve a break, she was a Pocatello resident before with quite a record before changing her name and moving north. Also a child died in her care at her illegal day care. By the way does anyone know what happened to her older daughter? Probably taken away and has been thrown in foster care. And she did this twice not just the one everyone is talking about. She doesn't deserve anymore breaks she deserves to have the book thrown at her. By the way Bob she doesn't have a twin sister.

Bob said...

Viking, thanks for your insight. Bet she was hot, as she still looks great.

You have convinced me that Kim needs an attitude adjustment that only time in the clink can accomplish. Not sure how the daycare thing started, but I know sometimes bad things happen even to nice people.

Viking said...

It could have been as innocent as a SIDs death but I know how irresponsible she was with her own kids, I can't imagine why anyone would leave her in charge of theirs.

Anonymous said...

Often times people do not check out day care providers carefully enough. I was under the impression that she also had a son that the bride and groom knew to some extent.

Nancy said...

How could she be guilty? "She acted like she fit in with everybody introduced herself to some of our family members, helped decorate the car, helped herself to the wedding cake before we cut it ourselves," said Charles Dougherty. "If you look really closely in the corner of your screen you can see Kim Cooper decorating the car."

Now how could she steal from them when she was one of the ones who helped decorate their car?

Kevin said...

Nancy, she was so cool, she even tested the cake first to make sure it was safe for the bride and groom to eat!

Viking said...

The one couple said that her son was invited to a birthday party at their house. They ended up keeping her son and daughter overnight because she left and they couldn't get ahold of her. When I was with her she had 2 daughters and a son. The 12 y/o was the younger daughter, her sister I believe was 2 or 3 years older than her, and her son was 2. This was in early 2001. In the video that shows her in court her younger daughter is there as well as a little boy that looks about 1. So from everything that I read I can only assume that 2 of her kids don't live with her.

Legal Pub said...

Viking, thanks for your personal insight. It appears that Kim may have a tough time getting out of trouble this time. Let's hope she gets the correction, guidance and treatment that she apparently needs should she be convicted of this offense.

J.J. said...

Kim Cooper looks so innocent in the video. I can not believe that she could be so cruel. Perhaps she needed the money?

Certainly a soul worth saving.

Cooper was apparently not charged and the death was ruled as sudden unexplained infant death.

Weeks later, a 5-year-old suffered third-degree burns from scalding water at Cooper's home. Cooper was charged with injury to a child and continued to operate a day-care. On April 25, 2007, Cooper appeared in Judge Mark Riddoch's courtroom for sentencing after the Bonneville County prosecutor agreed to a guilty plea of serious charge of injury to a child. Marty Anderson, Kristi Schneider's attorney indicates that Kristi Schneider was allowed to speak at Cooper's sentencing about her child's death.

Judge Mark Riddoch gave her 60 days in jail and ordered her to not watch any children in her home for two years. Cooper went to jail but her attorney filed an appeal stating it was prosecutorial misconduct to allow Jayden's mother to testify because she had nothing to do with the injury to a child involved in the burn case.

Judge Gregory Anderson ordered Cooper out of jail only 12 days into her 60-day sentence. So for now, Cooper can continue watching children until further order of the court.

Apparently Viking only knew about her time in Idaho, but it looks like she was busted for the same thing in Jackson Wyoming back in 2003. She looks pretty remorseful in the mugshot.

When I was with Kimberly back from '96-'99, she was the most beautiful girl in the world! She was kind and compassionate & she loved children!
She decided that the drugs were most important & she broke my heart, but I let her go so I could find my own level of sobriety.
It seems that all kind of went downhill for Kimberly after that. It is truely a shame that she chose the dope over love. Up until I saw all of this media regarding her actions (disgracefull), I had been under the impression that it was MY loss... Now I know better!!!
BTW, MY life has turned out very well WITHOUT her! Guess I got out just in time, huh?

A.J. Congratulations. You are a survivor. A beautiful face does not mean a beautiful heart. While Kimberly Cooper may have been beautiful on the outside, it appears that she would have been poison to you. Consequently, hold your head up high and keep moving on down the road of life.

As for Kim, let's wish her the best on her way back to respectability.

I too, know Kimberly, and she is costic (also really fat). The court system has failed the public by allowing her to go free. Her oldest daughter is on felony probation for grand theft auto (at 17?) Kim has 5 children from 4 fathers and wants more!! She lives off the system, God and neighbors raise her kids, she gets free housing, and food stamps, and public defendors. This is our tax money at work!!! She truly believes she is untouchable and in all honesty she is. Oh and the man she is "married" to Kirk Cooper, they really aren't, they bought their marriage license in Wyoming but married in Idaho, therefore the state of Idaho doesn't recognize them as being legally married. So I guess that means Cooper is an alias!!!

Kind of harsh on the real life wedding crasher aren't you? She doesn't look fat at all in the videos...

Not sure that she is a"bomshell" but I used to date Kirk Cooper. He was a strong, honest and decent man. Sad that I have heard he is hooked up with her. I hope he has become that strong man again and left the psycho!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway that is abusive to children, has a history of drug abuse and has children involved with legal activity already before age 18, needs help!!!!!

I used to date Kirk Cooper in Jackson. He was a strong and decent man. It is sad to hear that he has hooked up with a woman with such little regard for children, law, marriage or herself. Hopefully since it is now 2010, Kirk has wised up and left the psycho!

Greg,
You Are A Complete Moron. Sounds To Me That You Need To Get A Life. First Of All, There Is Nothing Hot About Kimberly Cooper. She Is A Lying, Stealing, Child Endangering Waste Of Skin. But Then Again, If You're Wanting Her Number You Must Fall Into The Same Category. I Marvel At The Fact That Nobody Gives A Thought To All Of Her Victims. She Violated The Trust Of Many Many People.
