Now a subject of multiple true-crime works, Warren Jeffs was once a cult leader of FLDS and admired by many followers. This continued until recently when the truths of his ghastly polygamy first surfaced. As the Churh’s head, he had 78 wives in addition to his legal spouse, per Bustle. By 2011, about twenty-four of these women were under the age of 17.

The outlet reported that allegations against Jeffs first surfaced when Arizona authorities indicted him of sexual conduct with a minor. Other charges included conspiracy to commit sexual conduct with a minor in 2005. Moreover, he also faced two counts of rape as an accomplice in Utah the following year. He also made it to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list until his arrest in August 2006.

Reportedly, Jeffs, a sexual predator, was sentenced to life in prison with an additional 20 years in 2011 for sexually assaulting two girls.

According to The Florida Times-Union, in August 2011, a jury convicted polygamist leader Warren Jeffs of sexually assaulting two underage followers. As head of the FLDS Church, Jeffs took the minors under him brides in “spiritual marriages.” Following this, he received a life sentence with an additional 20 years and is currently serving his sentence at the Louis C. Powledge Unit in Palestine, Texas.
