It's Not About Polygamy, It's About Child Rape

After twenty years in law enforcement I've seen lots of evil, wicked folks. However, this bit from CNN on the trial of Warren Jeffs just about tops it. Jeffs is the leader of a polygamous sect that set up a compound in Texas where it was alleged that young girls were being married to older men sparking a huge raid on the compound by law enforcement.

On Wednesday, Texas prosecutors rested their case after playing a key piece of evidence for jurors: an audiotape they allege documents Jeffs' sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl in the presence of three other "wives."

... On Tuesday, the jury heard audio recordings that prosecutors said showed Jeffs instructing a 14-year-old victim and his other young "wives" on how to sexually please him in order to win God's favor.

Preying on a child's religious beliefs to satisfy your pervy desires is just wrong in so many ways.

I think one of the more interesting moments at this trial was when he threatened the jury and judge with divine judgement for trying him.

To quote Texas Attorney General Gregg Abbott "It's time for judgment to be rendered." However, after Jeffs was found guilty yesterday I don't think it's going to be the kind of judgement Jeffs was hoping for.
