SAN ANGELO (August 4, 2011) - Warren Jeffs, leader of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints, has been convicted on child sexual assault charges.
His case stems from his relationship with two young followers he took as brides in what the FLDS church calls "spiritual marriages."
Jeffs has acted as his own attorney during the trial after firing his attorneys on July 28.
In 2008, authorities raided the YFZ ranch near Eldorado, and seized about 400 children.
Jeffs faces up to life in prison.
A forensic analyst testified that Jeffs was an almost certain DNA match to the child of a 15-year-old mother.
Jeffs also was accused of assaulting a 12-year-old girl.
