UPDATE 8/9/11: Jeffs has been sentenced to life in prison.
Remember Warren Jeffs, leader of the polygamist Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints sect who was accused of raping underage girls and impregnating a 15-year old? Good news! He was finally convicted yesterday. Sentencing is now underway.
Even if Jeffs goes away for a good long time, his cult will continue under new leadership, according to Flora Jessop, who escaped the FLDS when she was 16. There’s a shock.
