Cult leader Warren Jeffs scheduled for extradition hearing

A Utah judge will ask Warren Jeffs to sign a waiver that would extradite the polygamous church leader to Texas to face criminal charges.

Jeffs is the 54-year-old head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The southern Utah-based religious cult practices polygamy in arranged marriages that have sometimes involved underage girls.

Texas authorities have charged Jeffs with bigamy, aggravated sexual assault and assault related to alleged incidents with girls at a church ranch near Eldorado.
