    Child welfare officials allowed adult mothers with children ages 4 and younger to stay together when the state took custody of the rest of the children from the ranch. Now, only mothers younger than 18 will be allowed to remain with their children once the sampling is complete. The welfare agency will also try to keep siblings together, he said.

    "We're going to make these transitions as easy as possible," Azar said. "We want to keep them together as much as possible so they don't feel they're completely isolated from their culture or the people they know."

    DNA testing was ordered to help determine how the children and adults of the compound are related. Child welfare officials say solving those relationships has been difficult because of evasive or changing answers.

    Other challenges are families with half brothers and sisters, as well as reports of marriages between first cousins. Dr. Arthur Beaudet, chairman of the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, said DNA testing can easily deal with these types of complexities.

    "It's reasonable to say the information (from testing) will give full proof documentation" as to which parents belong to which children, he said.

    Although the many unique family ties found in the sect will probably add a level of difficulty for DNA analysts in determining parentage, Beaudet said the added complexity is still "not a significant concern."

    A certain number of DNA markers -- segments of the DNA with specific genetic characteristics -- are tested to determine if two people are related. Beaudet said that if any uncertainties arise, analysts simply test additional markers.

    Lawyer Calls State's Custody of Kids Illegal

    Polygamist Sect Cries Out After Judge Orders Extension of Custody and DNA Tests

    On Thursday, testimony in the giant custody case revealed that more than 20 girls taken from the polygamist Texas ranch became pregnant or gave birth before they were 16 or 17.

    The testimony came from Angie Voss, a supervisor of investigations at the Texas Department of Child Protective Services, who was part of the weeklong raid by Texas authorities of the polygamist compound and was relying on the interviews and records taken from the sect's compound. "There is a culture of young girls being pregnant by older men," Voss testified under cross-examination.

    Voss said that girls from FLDS had told child welfare interviewers that there is "no age too young to be married and they wanted to have as many babies as they could."

    New Times staff writer John Dougherty spent months examining the secretive, isolated polygamist Mormon communites that straddle the Arizona-Utah border north of the Grand Canyon. He found a culture of sexual abuse and psychological torment as well as the unlawful expenditure of millions of dollars in public money. And it's all been going on with little attempt by the state to help the residents or put an end to the fraud.

    ELDORADO - Only a few people from the YFZ Ranch had appeared for DNA testing by 10:30 a.m. at the collection point near the Schleicher County Courthouse.

    Three men who appeared to be polygamist sect members entered the sampling area at 10:15 a.m. One left at 10:30 and denied all interview requests, so there was no way to immediately verify whether he in fact submitted to the DNA sampling.

    The agency said results from the tests will take 30 to 50 days to process for children and parents from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ranch near Eldorado.

    If it takes the full 50 days, the results will not be available until June 9, four days after the 60-day custody hearings must be completed.

    and

    Women and children staying at San Angelo Coliseum will receive better access to their attorneys and be given private daily worship times under a pair of rulings made this afternoon by 51st District Judge Barbara Walther.

    Walther convened a hearing at 10 a.m. today to deal with a stack of motions and other paperwork filed over the weekend and early today in regard to the removal of 416 children from the YFZ Ranch. The children were removed in a dayslong raid begun April 3 on suspicion of widespread sexual abuse and forced marriage.

    Walther demurred on a restraining order request that would have prohibited Child Protective Services from removing nursing children from their mothers during the upcoming foster placement process.

    "These most private matters should be handled in an individual manner," Walther said, telling attorneys they should negotiate on a case-by-case basis with CPS in cases where the agency cannot find placements for a mother and her infant.
