Convicted Child Rapist Will Probably Run His Church From Prison

Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs, whose followers believe is a prophet who speaks directly with God, is likely to continue leading his church from behind bars after being sentenced to life in prison on child sex assault charges.

Followers of  Warren Jeffs’ Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are likely to still regard him as a prophet, despite his being found guilty of having sex with girls as young as 12.

Jeffs, who is 55 years old, won’t be eligible for parole until he is at least 100 years old, but this doesn’t appear to bother his church flock because it’s happened before.

Few if any people left his church in 2007 after Jeffs’ conviction on Utah sex assault charges.  Most of his members remained loyal, as he continued to direct the faith, counsel followers and lead Sunday services by phone.

Jeffs’ legal grip on the church is also strong.  Just last week, the Utah Department of Commerce reaffirmed Jeffs as the head of the corporations that make up the FLDS — after one of the church’s bishops tried unsuccessfully to seize control.

So Warren Jeffs is “going away”, but he’s not going very far.  He will still be in charge of his church.  The good news is that he won’t have access to any of his young wives anymore.

He’s also going to learn the harsh truth that — behind prison walls — child molesters and pedophiles are regarded as the lowest of the low, and other inmates treat them as such.
