A Washington County lawyer recently prosecuted the leader of the FLDS church and convinced the jury to reach a guilty verdict for two counts of accomplice to rape of a minor 14 year old girl. The crime occurred when Jeffs, the FLDS leader, arranged and married the victim to her 19 year old cousin. After the marriage, the victim repeatedly asked Jeffs to be let out of the marriage, for which he threatened her with loss of heavenly salvation and sent her back to her husband. Many of the legal professionals in Washington County thought that Jeffs would be found not guilty, but the jury decided that the forced marriage and the threats made to the victim were enough to find Jeffs guilty of the crime. Jeffs also faced a charge of flight to avoid prosecution in Washington County.
