Polygamist prophet Warren Jeffs controlling sect from behind bars

Arizona TV station KTVK — at — is among the many Utah and Arizona media outlets keeping tabs on the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS).

It has been six months since polygamous prophet Warren Jeffs was sentenced to life in a Texas prison for sexually assaulting underage girls.
