SAN ANGELO (AP) - Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs is due in court for a final hearing before his trial on two counts of sexual assault of a child.

Jeffs is to go on trial July 25 on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child from a 2008 raid on a remote Texas church retreat where authorities believed underage girls were being forced into polygamous marriages.

He is to appear at a court hearing in San Angelo Wednesday afternoon. At the hearing he might challenge a change of venue that moved the case from remote Eldorado, Texas, to San Angelo, about 45 miles north.

Prosecutors have accused Jeffs of stalling his trial by running through a series of attorneys.

If convicted, the 55-year-old Jeffs could face 99 years to life in prison.
