Members of Warren Jeffs’ church are ‘secretly holding underage girls for sexual purposes’

Daily Mail (United Kingdom)

Underage girls are still secretly being held by the followers of polygamist leader Warren Jeffs for sexual purposes, it has been reported.

A number of allegations have surfaced against Jeffs since he was jailed for life plus twenty years for raping a 12 and 15-year-old girl.

These are the latest allegations to surface after it came out on Tuesday that he has banned all his members from having sex and has voided every marriage.
Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff said on Wednesday he intends to look into the claim young girls are being held for sex.

He said: ‘I believe there’s still a half-dozen to a dozen places around the country where girls are still being held. And I’m very concerned about that.
