Polygamist Leader Warren Jeffs Will Serve Jailtime

Polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs will serve jailtime for his role in the arranged marriage of teenage cousins.

A judge has sentenced Jeffs to five years to life in prison for arranging the marriage of a minor.

He was also found guilty of two counts of rape as an accomplice.

The mainstream Mormon church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, renounced polygamy more than a century ago and ex-communicates members who engage in the practice.
