FULL TITLE: Revealed: Harrowing ordeal of child bride forced to marry her stepbrother who escaped Warren Jeffs' polygamous sect with her six young children

Ruby Jessop was just 14-years-old when she was deemed 'sexually mature' by polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs and forced to marry her second cousin and step-brother and have sex with different men.

She was held against her will at the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for the next 12 years, in which time she bore six children and lived under the iron fist of the pervert leader.

Ruby Jessop, now 26, managed to escape from the sick and twisted world of Warren Jeffs last month and has now been granted temporary custody of the children aged from two to ten, who were being held 'hostage' by the sect, her sister said.

The resolution to her incredible story came to light after police held a press conference on Tuesday to announce she managed to leave the walled compound in Colorado City, Arizona, as a result of a criminal probe of the polygamous sect and and the nearby Marshall's office.

Arizona's attorney general Tom Horne spoke today of what happened to Ruby and revealed there were many more in her situation.

'What they do is say, "Everybody watch her so she won’t run away." Then she can’t leave. Women who wanted to escape have been forcibly held by the marshals against their will.'

Attorneys for the two towns and the Marshal’s Office adamantly denied the charges, calling Horne’s words 'inflammatory'.

Lawyer Blake Hamilton said: 'I can’t speak for the FLDS but the bottom line is the Marshal’s Office absolutely does not hold people against their will.

flds follow Joseph Smith’s original teachings, so not surprised.

This is my County. I am a new Supervisor. I am making you a promise that something is going to be done about this travesty that is taking place in my backyard. It’s way overdue and it’s going to happen.

NYC schools and probably other places have decided that 11 year olds are old enough for sex. They mandate a pro-sex sex ed class that includes routing maps to the local abortion clinics, studying different types of condoms and making sure they do not discriminate when they slut around.

They are forced to take this class, with obscene workbooks, for a full semester.

This is wonderful news.

All I know about the the FLDS situation is from news reports, but my impression is the Colorado City marriages to multiple wives and close relatives have been allowed to continue for a very long time on the grounds that polygamists can do what they want as long as they're consenting adults. Perhaps marriages to young girls will be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

I'm guessing you've already realized that if you wade into this, you're going to be at the forefront of the next two wars against marriage after homosexual marriage, i.e., the wars to legalize polygamy and sex with young children.

I wish you the best. You're going to need it. I don't know you personally at all, but from what I read you don't back down from a fight — and we need someone like that at the front lines of the culture war.

Maybe G-d raised up a Jewish woman from New York who has more “balls” than lots of conservative men to do the job we won't or can't do?
