Jeffs’ defense attorneys — who released an interview with the midwife to support their claim — say Elissa Wall asked the midwife to forge records of a miscarriage Wall suffered in 2002.
Wall’s attorneys say that she only “unwittingly” answered questions about the miscarriage when the midwife contacted her.
In either case, as of Thursday a Utah Attorney General’s Office investigation into the matter is ongoing and prosecutors have not decided whether they will re-try Jeffs.
This year, the Utah Supreme Court overturned his conviction for forcing the then 14-year-old Elissa Wall to marry her 19-year-old cousin in 2002.
