Texas begins new proceedings to extradite Mormon sect leader Warren Jeffs


ReligionNewsBlog.com • Wednesday July 28, 2010

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott on Tuesday immediately began a new proceeding to extradite Warren Jeffs, a spokesman for Abbott said.

“We are currently working with the Texas governor’s office and Utah authorities to bring Warren Jeffs to Texas to stand trial,” said the spokesman, Jerry Strickland.

In September 2007 the cult leader, who ruled his polygamous FLDS cult with an iron hand, was found guilty of two counts of being an accomplice to rape.

Last Tuesday his conviction was overturned on a technicality.

Texas authorities have charged Jeffs with bigamy, sexual assault of a child and aggravated assault.
