    "Jeffs' sect believes polygamy brings exaltation in heaven."

    Wonder where he ever got an idea like that...

    When a minor girl delivers a baby, sexual abuse has taken place. When DNA identifies a much older man to be the father, the case is essentially proved. (some states ahve enhanced penalties for when offeneder is 4+ years older than victim). Mr. jeffs wants to represent himself. that's ok, but he will open himself up to questioning by the Prosecutor, but it's his choice! Judge Walter should be on guard against any errors that would allow an appeal from conviction. Mr. Jeffs should pay for his own defense, the assets of the land trust are the sweat and tears of the thousands of followers who built their own houses, but could never own them, and gave all their earnings to their husbands.
