FLDS: Second sect trial set

Jury members will again be pulled from Schleicher County for a second sexual assault of a child trial involving a member of a polygamist sect.

Allen Keate will be tried Dec. 7 on a charge of sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony that carries a punishment of two to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.

An April 2008 raid of the sect’s Yearning for Zion Ranch near Eldorado resulted in the removal of more than 400 children and criminal charges against 12 Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints men.
