    A Texas jury sentenced polygamist leader Warren Jeffs for sexual assault on two underage girls he claimed as "spiritual brides."

    It's against the law to marry more than one person at the same time in the state. Jeffs received a 99-year sentence on one count and 20 years on the other. He will serve no less than 45 years.

    It took less than an hour for the jury to decide.

    The conviction has nothing to do with the "marriages" as he did not legally marry them. The conviction was due to him having sex with underaged girls. He was also being investigated for setting up "spiritual marriages" which were not legal, between older men and underaged women.

    The fundementalist mormons do not do legal marriages, only church marriages. That is how they get around the bigamy laws. What jeffs got nailed for was being a pederast.

    The children thought they were married to him at the time, and so did their mothers. The bond was so strong over their minds it was alike a legal marriage in every way to those underage girls. I've seen how recalcitrant spiritualists who pursue evil work. First they create a common enemy in the mind of their followers--government, the police, all other churches, namely the ones from which they just broke away. Then they move in for the kill to freely rape, order murders, thefts, and every manner of illegality there is that will pleasure their warped minds.

    Perhaps the lawyers didn't broach this issue, but it's the elephant in the sitting room.

    Thanks you, however, for bringing up the letter of the law. In this case, it works for me, but so does Warren Jeff's elephant just sitting there, preening himself on how he was going to pull this one off by outfoxing the foxes, FWIW. :)

    The 'life' expectancy if pedophile's in prison is subject to the temperment of fellow prisoners...his 'life sentence' may be shorter than expected.

    In my opinion ALL pedophiles should be put into general population....and what they are in for broadcasted to the rest of the inmates.....

    That sentence works for me.

    That depends, some prisons put the short eyes "pedophiles" in protective custody, they don't have any contact with gen pop so he may have a long life.

    In pedophiles cases.... no. I prefer they live a very long time.

    Long slow prison sentences in general population works much better for me.

    But in the general sense... yes executions work for me :thup:
