    Sect leader convicted on rape-by-proxy charges

    Warren Jeffs faces potential life sentence over teen’s arranged marriage

    ST. GEORGE, Utah - The leader of a polygamous Mormon splinter group was convicted Tuesday of being an accomplice to rape for performing a wedding between a 19-year-old man and a 14-year-old girl.

    Warren Jeffs, 51, could get life in prison after a trial that threw a spotlight on a renegade community along the Arizona-Utah line where as many as 10,000 of Jeffs’ followers practice plural marriage and revere him as a mighty prophet with dominion over their salvation.

    Jeffs, like his 15 followers in the courtroom, stood stoically as the verdict was read.

    I don't understand why the guy that actually suposedly raped the 14 year old is not being charged. It seems like it is more about politics than the law.

    If you've followed the case, that "church" is basically a cult.
    The members willingly do anything that this piece of shit says, and are convinced they will go to hell if they don't.
    It is a very screwed up situation, and everyone who has to submit to Jeffs' will is a victim.

    If i was going to start a cult i definitely wouldn't want my followers to call me 'jeff'.

    Maybe Robo-god, because robots kick ass.

    Hence, the "slap some sense into the followers" comment!
