Jason Miles Williams says his ex-wife was persuaded by leaders of a Utah polygamous religion to divorce him and become the second plural wife of another church member.

On Thursday, Williams of Hurricane filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City against the estate of Rulon Jeffs, the late leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS).

Williams claims his former wife was “brainwashed” by Jeffs and other “elders of the church” to leave their Colorado City, Ariz., home and divorce him.

Williams is a former member of the church that practices polygamy in the twin border cities of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz. Jeffs died on Sept. 8 at 92.

The FLDS Church is an offshoot of the jQuery(document).ready(function( $) { $.post( 'https://www.religionnewsblog.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php', {action: 'mts_view_count', id: '995'}); });
