Raymond Jessop of the FLDS Convicted of Assaulting an Underage Girl
Last year I wrote several posts on the FLDS and how Texas authorities took away 400 children from their families, all of which were later returned after the Texas Supreme Court ruled that they didn’t have sufficient reason to think that abuse was happening.
Raymond Jessop was one of the people from the Yearning for Zion Ranch that were indicted for sexual assault of a minor last year. Thursday he was convicted of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 17 that he was “spiritually married” to. His sentencing is supposed to be on Monday and he may receive up to 20 years in prison.
