Update on Warren Jeffs

Arizona has dropped charges against polygamist leader Warren Jeffs at the behest of prosecutors and victims who want him to face the more serious felony charge, in Texas, of sexual assault of a child. Jeffs is a "prophet" of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints (FLDS). ARTICLE

I recommend anything written by Jon Krakauer, but, in this case, his “Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith” is one of the best resources for a history of the Mormons and a revealing investigation of the offshoot FLDS sect Jeffs has lead.

Krakauer's book is excellent. Most people know very little about this bizarre subculture which exists right here in our own country. And some of the even more fringe FLDS figures he writes about engage in behavior far more disturbing than even Jeffs and his crowd did.
