Allen Steed won't cop a plea.

From KXAN.

"(Allen Steed's) attorney Jim Bradshaw says plea negotiations recently ended with no agreement.

A hearing is October 22nd to determine if prosecutors have enough evidence for a trial."

Hat tip to Christian or Biblical Polygamy. This is part of the overall FLDS persecution that has me on the edge of my seat. That's an uncomfortable place to be since it's taking so long. Allen Steed may not even go to trial. His conviction is by no means assured. If he is not convicted, it would be as if Warren Jeffs was thrown in jail for driving the getaway car for a robbery that was not planned and was not executed. Better yet, it would be like being accused of assisting in the rape of a girl, that was later found to be a virgin.

I can't wait to see what happens legally if Allen is never convicted. How do you keep a man in jail for a crime that was not planned and never occurred, as an accomplice to that non existent crime?
