6 Indicted

6 Ham Sandwiches. One is Warren Jeffs. The San Angelo Standard-Times;

ELDORADO - "A Schleicher County grand jury issued indictments today against Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints leader Warren Jeffs and five other sect members, alleging sexual assault, bigamy and related charges.

Jeffs was charged with sexually assaulting a child, a first-degree felony, and the four others were indicted on allegations of sexually assaulting girls younger than (the legal age?) Each of those four face one felony count of sexual assault, and one faces an additional charge of bigamy.

Jeffs was identified because he was served with the indictment in jail. The other four remain unidentified until they are served.

'The indictments issued today are part of an ongoing and continuing criminal investigation,' a news release from Attorney General Greg Abbott's office said."

If you have to like something about this, it is that one of the six is Warren Jeffs. That hardly has anything to do with the raid. Another man is probably "Raymond Jessop," the "spiritual husband" of Teresa Jeffs and it may be that charge loses steam based on whether or not Teresa is a virgin, which she probably is. Of the four remaining, one is charged with being an accomplice, another with bigamy. Some of the the indictments may be for the same man, different crimes. We don't know the identities;

The Deseret News - "One man faces an additional charge of bigamy, also a first-degree felony, while another man has been charged with three counts of failing to report child abuse, according to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott."

I hate to say it but Willie Jessop might be that man charged with "failing to report child abuse" because that would mean he could be arrested and "taken out" of the picture. Willie wants to be in Washington Thursday. Watch to see if they try to arrest him in a manner timed to prevent him from being there. He'll probably make bail.
