The rumor mill told me this about an hour ago. Now it's official:
ABC4 - "Because we hold that the trial court’s instructions to the jury regarding lack of consent were in error, we reverse Jeffs’ two convictions of rape as an accomplice and remand for a new trial."The Utah Supreme Court Decision, was UNANIMOUS.
The Salt Lake Tribune - In its unanimous decision, the court said 5th District Judge James Shumate erred when he rejected an instruction requiring the jury to find Jeffs knew unwanted sex would take place and intended for a rape to occur."It wasn't even close. Read the Ruling at CNN.
