Cult leader’s rape conviction overturned

In 2007, Warren Jeffs, “prophet” of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was convicted on two counts of rape as an accomplice. Prosecutors charged that he forced a 14-year-old girl to marry and have sex with her 19-year-old cousin. He was sentenced to two consecutive terms of five years to life.

Yesterday, the Utah Supreme Court threw out the conviction.

Speaking of spouse abusers with God complexes… You would laugh if this lunatic wasn’t serious which he is.

BlueJay, no, I’ve never read them but I am starting to think along the same thoughts you are. If I find out, I’ll get back to you.

Frank Lee, he really is born into the Windsor family. Like it or not. He really does holds the title “Prince of Wales”. Not an illusion. He’s not some guy sitting in his bedroom making this stuff up to pick up women. LOL.
