Teen in Search of Family Sues Warren Jeffs

KSL [Utah]
February 21, 2007

A teen kicked out of the polygamous FLDS church is suing Warren Jeffs to help him find his family.

Eighteen-year-old Johnny Jessop hasn't spoken to his mother in almost two years. He believes Jeffs ordered his mother to cut ties with him after he was kicked out of the church. So he's asked a judge to make Jeffs tell him where she is.

Jessop is part of a group of boys kicked out of the church for being disobedient or because they were seen as competition for older men seeking younger brides.
