Even though he is not supposed to be doing so, polygamist Warren Jeffs appears to be issuing edicts to members of the FLDS (Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints) church members. An investigation is underway after FLDS church members came forward saying Jeffs sent orders to his followers from behind bars. Jeffs is in prison in Texas, after being convicted of having sex with under-aged girls who he married. He was sentenced in August to life in prison plus 20 years for assault.
According to his followers in Utah, he recently banned bicycles, ATVs, trampolines and even children’s toys.
In his latest move, Jeffs has voided all marriages in the sect. In his edict, he said that couples can live together but cannot have sex until he is released from prison.
