A Texas judge says polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs can represent himself during his sexual assault trial but she will not delay its start further.
A jury has been selected, but the trial of polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs won’t have opening statements without at least one more hearing.
Whether he’s a holy man or a criminal, it’s hard to find people who don’t have an opinion on Warren Jeffs in a remote corner of West Texas.
Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs is due in court for a final hearing before his trial on two counts of sexual assault of a child.
Prosecutors plan to ask a court to uphold the sexual assault conviction of a polygamous sect member in the first appeal stemming from the 2008 raid of a West Texas ranch.
