    AZ - FLDS leader Warren Jeffs on child sex charges, Colorado City, 2005

    The leader of a polygamous sect was indicted on charges that he arranged a marriage between a 16-year-old girl and a man who was already married, prosecutors said Friday.

    Warren Jeffs, president of the Fundamental Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was charged with sexual conduct with a minor and conspiracy to commit sexual conduct with a minor.

    Jeffs, 49, didn't have sex with the teenager but arranged her marriage to a 28-year-old married man, said Mohave County Attorney Matthew Smith.


    "He can't marry someone else," Smith said.

    The 28-year-old man, whose identity won't be released until the indictment is delivered to him, was charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.

    If convicted, Jeffs would face a jail sentence ranging from four months to two years.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    In a major blow to polygamy on the Arizona-Utah line, a Mohave County grand jury on Friday indicted the elusive leader of a multiple-marriage sect on two felony sex-crime charges involving the arranged marriage of a 16-year-old girl.

    Warren S. Jeffs, 49, president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was charged with one count each of sexual conduct with a minor and conspiracy to commit sexual conduct with a minor in Colorado City from March to June 2002.

    We are hearing a lot about this as the sect is relocating to 1500 remote acres in Texas. On the news last night it showed their new buildings - 11 or so of 2100 + sq feet in size plus a HUGE multi story "temple" three times that size - all completed since January 05. Locals say they are working 20 hours a day but are not buying anything locally and they have no idea how many people are living there presently. Local authorities are using a plane to fly over weekly and take aerial photos so they can follow the building and see how many people are there. The residents now hide from planes flying nearby. The property was bought as a "hunting ranch and retreat" but obviously they intend to move a large number of members there to live permanently. It is all behind locked gates and fences - and no phone on the property except one cell phone. Obviously things are getting too hot in Utah and Arizona for this sect so they are planning to try Texas. I've got news for them, Texas LE isn't going to look the other way, especially if they continue to be reclusive. The Mormons do not hold sway over anything here and Texans do not look kindly upon those who marry sweet young girls their daughter's ages (12, 13, 14) to men in their 40's and 50's who already have 3 or 4 wives. Those locked gates don't mean a damn thing to LE officers with 4WD trucks and gun racks. A chain cutter is standard equipment for LE in W Texas.
    Ugh - this whole thing just makes my skin crawl!

    It's my opinion only - and I like it. Yours may be different
    and I may not like it, but we can just agree to disagree and move on.

    I am actually quite glad to see that they are doing something about this. There were 2 girls recently on Dr. Phil who had just escaped that place. They were getting ready to be married off, and this Warren Jess is sick but he has the town they live in pretty much in his pocket. It is really said that more hasn't been done. But it looks like they are getting what they can.

    If yall ONLY KNEW how much MONEY, TAX PAYERS money goes to support pedophilia and polygamy yall would BARF. This man is a DISGUSTING PEDOPHILE worshiped by hordes of people. He is a sick sick man. Pop out the kids, then rape the government to support them.
    Absolutely DISGUSTING.
    They run the town, the police, the local gov't. A man name Leavitt prosecuted a similar case in UT, and what did they do? They booted him out of office! I will have to dig a bit to find that case, but I think it might have even been one of Jeff's (If not Jeff himself) "little buddies".
    The poor GIRLS!!! They are not to watch TV, go to school, QUESTION thier husbands (even if they are EIGHTY)... It is absolutely ATTROCIOUS that we turn our heads from this....

    Not only the child sex abuse, but what about the young men that are called "the Lost Boys".

    It is about bloodly time the Governement did something about this monster walking the earth diisguising himself as a human being.

    He is a disgusting human being.

    Ya know the Catholic Church is finally cleaning up its act. Time LDS did the same. They have to take some responsibility. This is a long standing historical truth that they have encouraged polygamy and or turned their backs on it.

    This is child abuse, child exploitation clear and simple.

    Former Polygamist Member Reacts to Charges Against Jeffs

    Terry Goddard, Attorney General of Arizona: “This is the first time in my knowledge that we've had a witness willing to step forward and say this is what happened to me, I was sexually abused."

    Charges have been filed in Arizona against a polygamist leader, and Utah officials seem ready to help.

    A sixteen-year-old girl told Arizona authorities she was raped by a 28 year- old-man a person she was forced to marry in her polygamous group.

    The marriage was arranged by Warren Jeffs, the leader of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

    Sheriff won't raid polygamist compound for arrest

    A West Texas sheriff says he doesn't intend to raid the Eldorado compound of a polygamist sect to arrest the group's leader, who has been indicted on sex-crime charges in Arizona

    Schleicher County Sheriff David Doran said Sunday he will arrest Warren Jeffs on an Arizona warrant if he's pulled over for a traffic violation.

    I'm bumping this up for a new article in the Rocky Mountain news.

    http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drm...862250,00.html


    snippet:


    Boulder author Jon Krakauer, who wrote a best-seller on a polygamous sect, is actively involved in searching for the group's fugitive leader, law enforcement officials said Thursday. The offices of the Utah and Arizona attorneys general said Krakauer has continued to follow the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints since the book was published in 2003.


    Some of us have shared Krakauer's book. It's interesting that he's involved.

    FBI is also on the trail of fugitive FLDS leader

    The FBI has joined the hunt for the leader of a polygamous sect on the Utah-Arizona border who is wanted on criminal sex charges.
    The bureau added a charge of unlawful flight against Warren Steed Jeffs, president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, who faces a state indictment charging he arranged a marriage between a teenage girl and a 28-year-old man who already had one wife.
    The bureau's involvement came at the request of Mohave County, Ariz., attorneys who obtained the grand jury indictment against Jeffs last month on charges that include conspiracy to commit sexual conduct with a minor. If convicted, he could face up to two years in jail.
    "He's considered a fugitive," Special FBI Agent Deborah McCarley said of Jeffs, who hasn't been seen at the twin border towns of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz., that are wholly owned by his church.

    I used to live in southern Utah, in Cedar City.

    I was told once (by a lifetime resident of Cedar)
    that it was common to find a few children (or
    babies) dead in the canal that runs through Colorado City
    each year.
    Children that were deformed or handicapped due to
    inbreeding; and nothing would be done about them -
    as this communities police (gov't employees, too) were
    members of this sect.

    This is hearsay - since I never saw it myself.
    I believe it, though.
