Federal grand jury indicts polygamous sect leader for allegedly fleeing prosecution
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A federal grand jury indicted the leader of a polygamous sect Wednesday, accusing him of fleeing to avoid prosecution on Utah sex charges.
The one-count indictment covers a five-month period in 2006, although Warren Jeffs was believed to be on the run for a longer stretch before his arrest in August during a traffic stop near Las Vegas.
Jeffs also faces trial in southern Utah in April on charges of rape as an accomplice for his alleged role in the ceremonial marriage of a teenage girl to an older cousin. In Arizona, he faces felony sex charges in Mohave County, Ariz. for his alleged role in arranging underage marriages for some of his followers.
To help in the search for Jeffs, federal prosecutors filed an arrest warrant against him in April 2006.
Federal charges tied to such warrants typically are dropped once a suspect is caught and transferred to state authorities. But with Jeffs, "we felt like if there were ever a time to pursue a defendant ... this was it," said Melodie Rydalch, spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman.
The federal charge carries a maximum punishment of five years in federal prison.
Pull up every jaywalking that feak has just to add more time behind bars and off our streets.
Jeffs will never leave jail alive. <-— There, I said it first.

It’s true. I’m surprised he’s survived this long. Pedophiles don’t do well in prison.
They don’t have him in the general population.
Might I add that I hope his fellow inmates learn not only of his provoclivity for young girls but also of his profound teachings on race.
No, that’s a good thing. That means moving him to the general population can be a leverage for information.
How is this dated today?........ Yes it’s today’s web page but the article is old isn’t it?.....

“Pull up every jaywalking that feak has just to add more time behind bars and off our streets.”
I dare you to say that in English.
