Thanks to Texas, some of this criminal operation appears to be facing justice. Can't help but wonder: wouldn't RICO apply with some of this?

Warren Jeffs trial pinglist—if you want on or off, let me know via freepmail.

This is actually the aftermath of the trial. We’re not seeing a lot in the news, but a lot is going on!

Schism, New Indictments Follow Polygamist Leader's Conviction

August 19, 2011
by Howard Berkes

A letter sent by email and snail mail urges the followers of polygamist leader and convicted pedophile Warren Jeffs to "come clean ... or you are going down with the wicked and the damned."

It's signed by two former leaders of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or FLDS, including former Jeffs spokesman Willie Jessop and William E. Jessop (no relation to Willie), who some consider the rightful successor to Jeffs. The message is the first visible sign of a possible schism in the polygamist faith in the wake of Jeffs' conviction in Texas for sexual assault of "wives" 12 and 15.

Also this week, criminal indictments were announced for two FLDS members who are public officials in Colorado City, Ariz., where the FLDS Church is based. The two are charged with misusing public funds and participating in "a criminal syndicate."

The letter directly addresses FLDS members in general and Lyle Jeffs, in particular. Jeffs is the brother of the convicted FLDS prophet and is believed to be running the day-to-day affairs of the group while Warren Jeffs serves a life sentence in Texas.

"There is responsibility to see to it there is no iniquity in the church, and to protect the virtue, and values of our church," the letter says. "You all have had five long years and numerous opportunities to clean this immoral mess up, and you have not!"

Lyle Jeffs' phone number in the FLDS stronghold of Hildale, Utah, is now disconnected.

(Excerpt, read the rest here.)


A bit of irony here, with former thug-of-all-trades Willie Jessup now talking about "going down with the wicked and the damned."
