FLDS Goes on offense over 14 year old.

From the Deseret News. It would appear FLDS attorneys are trying to use the hearings, rightfully so, to correct some errors in the record. This might also suggest that the 14 year old number given to us in the range of 14-17 is populated by only one person and this 14 year old (or others) was/were placed on the list merely to create that salacious date range.

SAN ANGELO, Texas — A lawyer for a 14-year-old girl that is on a list of so-called "disputed minors" said this morning she is not pregnant as Texas child welfare authorities have alleged.

"'My client does not have children. (She) is not pregnant. She's the youngest on the list of disputed minors,' said Andrea Sloan.

The judge hearing the case objected, saying that was not what the hearing was about. But Sloan pressed forward.

'The department is communicating to the public that there are 14-year olds who are pregnant,' she said.

Texas Child Protective Services caseworker Ashley Kennedy said that investigations were still ongoing.

The bombshell was dropped during the hearing involving Adeline Barlow, 38, the mother of a 10-year-old and the 14-year-old."

What this could mean is the FLDS is now attacking the 14 to 17 year old statement by pulling the rug out from under it. If they chip about 10 to 12 off the top, and then find the one or two 14 year olds in the "range and there are no, for instance, 15 and 16 year olds, the house of cards is now one card thick.
