Warren Jeffs Guilty

Polygamist Leader Found Guilty in Child-Rape Case

Warren Jeffs, leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been found guilty of sexually assaulting two underage girls, fathering a child with one of them. Sentencing is still pending for Jeffs, who could receive some serious time behind bars. He didn't put up much a defense, choosing to defend himself instead of hiring lawyers. Apparently, he didn't say much in the time allotted him for defense and he submitted the entire book of mormon as evidence. He is a sick man and I can't help but feel sorry for those poor children prevented from experiencing the real world and indoctrinated with the worst values imaginable by predators like Jeffs. It's nice to know that many of the church leaders have also been found guilty of various charges. Is there any hope to save the children from such mental abuse?
