Grand Jury to get in gear by Wednesday

It may be that no minors testify, only those women who WERE minors at the time of conception.

"A Schleicher County clerk confirmed the grand jury has been called in but would not say why or when it would meet. But The Salt Lake Tribune has learned the hearing will be under way by Wednesday and is related to the investigation of residents of the Yearning for Zion Ranch, all members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The grand jury met June 2 but didn't take up any FLDS-related matters."

The formation of a Grand Jury shows how WEAK the evidence Texas has, is.

an updated link
They seem to change the link every time there's an update at the trib. Makes all the old links you saved worthless!

The most we know about the questioing of the mothers from that article is; "CPS has begun interviewing some mothers, several attorneys said.".

Bill, over at, mentioned CPS doing interviews to avoid having attorneys present. If they are mothers over 18 YO, I can't think of any reason why they couldn't have attorneys present. The un-scheduled visits would probably make it near impossible though.

I had read where the CPS had the authority to interview children UNDER 18 YO without attorneys present. This makes me think they'd concentrate more on any mothers under 18 YO, specifically, the 3 we know of and the 4th that is a soon to be mother (so they claim).

When they stretch out into other mothers, >18 YO, the number that may be possible cases seems to diminish quickly. I recall a couple of them that might have been underage mothers, but they're marriages were not plural.

Texas would look real silly trying to hang them because of some technical problem like there not being a marriage license, but little matters like that hasn't seemed to bother them so far!
