Ex-FLDS leader set to be paroled from Texas prison
AP ^ | 5/2/2013

A former top lieutenant to polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs who was sentenced last year to a decade in prison is scheduled to be released on parole next week, Texas prison officials said Thursday.

Wendell Loy Nielsen, the former president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was convicted in March 2012 on three counts of bigamy and given a 10-year prison term.

Nielsen and 11 other FLDS members were indicted after a 2008 police raid at the church's remote West Texas compound, known as the Yearning for Zion ranch. He was accused of marrying three women in 2005.

Nielsen became eligible for parole last month after having served a quarter of his sentence, said Texas prison system spokesman Jason Clark. This was calculated by adding the actual time he had served in jail with time received for good behavior and credit for working while in prison, Clark said.

The 72-year-old Nielsen is set to be released Wednesday from the Robertson Unit in Abilene. He served his sentence at the Terrell Unit in Rosharon, located south of Houston.

If Texas keeps letting pervs out like that they’ll soon be in bed with Vermont ~ they don’t keep ‘em locked up either.

If homosexuals can so-called "marry," there's no reason one man couldn't marry more than one woman, or one woman more than one man.

Be careful what you go to court for!

I think it may require a Constitutional amendment to do that, see Reynolds vs US.

I've read some opinions that this decision also defined marriage as between one man and one woman.

Absolutely ... providing these fillies want to become his goddess wives for time and all eternity ... watching him rule as a god over his own planet ... forever pregnant and continuously giving birth to his spirit babies.

Heaven as revealed by Joseph Smith ... what more could you women possibly want?

Only a man could think that being eternally pregnant would be heaven.

That alone would keep me from ever becoming a Mormon if I wasn't already a Christian.

Their brainwashing is complete, I see.

A couple of the younger ones don’t look bad but the older ones look like they’ve been sucking lemons.

Only an idiot could think that living around and taking care of a bunch of crabby, uncomfortable eternally pregnant women would be heaven.

That alone would keep me from ever becoming a Mormon if I wasn't already a Christian.

Well; little lady; it’s like this: They get a nice, bright blue dress for their wedding day, and every time they have sex it gets washed.

Now the dye isn’t that good and tends to fade with each washing...

I’ve never understood why any guy would want more than one woman yammering at him at a time.

Last I knew, inmates had to serve a third of their time. That was bad enough but now it’s a fourth? What was the point in all that expense of sending him to prison?

Vermont is also one of only two states that allows their incarcerated felons to vote.

The other one is Maine.

I was wondering the same thing. There had to be something to the color scheme.

Yeah. There's a lot I've never understood. How could anyone think kids are sexy? How could anyone think horses are sexy? How could anyone figure relationships would get easier by adding more people? Why do some people believe other people's love lives are any of their business? Why do some people insist on making public spectacles of their love lives? One of the great joys of getting old is telling oneself, "Well, so what? I don't have enough time to try to understand everything."
