Another Nolo - No Trial for Lehi (UPDATED)

There will be no trial for Lehi Barlow Jeffs:
The San Angelo Standard-Times - "Lehi Barlow Jeffs, 31, took a plea deal for eight years in prison for sexual assault of a child who was bound to him in a nonlegal marriage when the girl was 15 years old. The assault itself, based on the birth of her child, was alleged to have occurred on Sept. 18, 2006.

Jeffs also plead no contest to bigamy, having had three wives, one of them legal. He was sentenced to eight years to be served concurrently with his other sentence."
It is probably that Lehi retained the right to benefit from appeals regarding the evidence, should Barbara Walther be reversed (Bill Medvecky says yes).
"(Michael) Emack also keeps the right to appeal based on the motion to quash the grand jury indictments alleging that the grand jury system in Schleicher County underrepresented Hispanics."
From the Standard-Times, January 22nd, 2010.
