Warren Jeffs Is Pestering South Dakota County Officials

BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) – A polygamist who’s in prison for sexual assault has been pestering South Dakota county officials with letters and boxes of books.

Butte County officials tell the Rapid City Journal the material is coming from Warren Jeffs and his supporters.

Jeffs is leader of a sect called the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Jeffs is serving a life term, plus 20 years, in a Texas prison for sexually assaulting two young girls he claimed as his wives.

A group affiliated with Jeffs owns land in western South Dakota’s Custer County.

But auditor Elaine Jensen says there’s no record of Jeffs’ church having any presence in Butte County.

The materials include a letter from Jeffs in which he claims “keyholding power of authority on Earth.”

    I wish there would be a special hell on earth for this pervert. This whole idea of
    hime breathing same air I breath is revolting. Hard labor if there were such a thing anymore would serve this creature who is parading around as just punishment for him. I can see him spltting rocks and never finishing.
