The YFZ Ranch housed the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints sect led by Warren Jeffs
Records obtained by The Associated Press show Texas prosecutors have spent more than $4 million convicting polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs and a number of his followers.
Polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs was sentenced by a Tom Green County jury this morning after being convicted of two sexual assault counts against him last week.
The 55-year-old Jeffs faces a maximum sentence of life in prison after being found guilty of sexual assault of a child Thursday afternoon.
Warren Jeffs faces sexual assault of a child and bigamy charges but only retained a lawyer in late January, and his legal team seeks more time to prepare.
