The leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is wanted in Arizona and Utah on suspicion of sexual misconduct for allegedly arranging marriages between underage girls and older men.

The church is headquartered in the neighboring communities of Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah.

Jeffs has been on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list since May, with a $100,000 reward offered for information leading to his capture.
Does that mean he "stays in Vegas?"

The Statutory Rape charges I agree with but the rest is just administrivia. Even Stat Rape is not a capital crime, very shitty, but not a capital crime. I still don't see the 10 most wanted deal. Glad they caught him but...

You know if they had put a $25 Million reward on him like OBL, I bet he would have been caught earlier, and I would have an SLR

Ultimately, he has assumed responsibility for all of the heinous goings-on at Colorado City. For a brief overview: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Steed_Jeffs.

I guess I almost see him as an Al Capone type -- an evil-doer responsible for much more than he can ever actually be charged with.

Could you imagine what 10 syncronized menstrual cycles would be like?

I do agree with FBI.

He is not that good-looking to have seventy wives.

Most of us have just one and some of us have none.

Justice should be done to him!!
