Warren Jeffs in Arizona

Warren Jeffs has been handed over to the Arizona police to face charges that came out of arranging marriages of two teenage girls to older relatives. The so-called prophet of polygamy has already been convicted in Utah in connection with one of those cases involving a fourteen year old girl.

The Arizona Attorney General is rightfully looking at this as a case of child abuse and there should not be exceptions under the law against this, even for religious reasons.

If Jeffs is convicted in Arizona he will have to finish his two sentences of five years to life in Utah prior to doing his time in Arizona.
