Religious persecution? He is certainly crazy since he is not even using an attorney. Those poor young girls that live in this lifestyle.SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — A Texas jury has convicted polygamist leader Warren Jeffs on child sexual assault charges in a case stemming from two young followers he took as brides in what his church calls "spiritual marriages."
A forensic analyst testified that Jeffs was an almost certain DNA match to the child of a 15-year-old mother. Jeffs also was accused of assaulting a 12-year-old girl..
Jeffs acted as his own attorney and claimed he was a victim of religious persecution.
I've watched the first season of Sister Wives, and they claim underage sex isn't part of their culture, but they also describe themselves as Mormon fundamentalists. They seem to have a normal family, just structured completely differently than a normal family unit.
