Historical Note

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS Church) is a Mormon denomination that has traditionally practiced polygamy. It split from the mainline Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the early twentieth century. The FLDS Church's members have regarded its leaders as prophets with divine authority. In 2006, its leader and prophet Warren Jeffs was placed on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list in connection with sex crimes charges stemming from alleged cases of underage marriage. He resigned as leader of the Church in 2007, but did not renounce his status as a prophet. Over the next several years, several of the original charges were dismissed while additional charges were brought in various jurisdictions. In August 2011, a Texas court sentenced him to life in prison for one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child and 20 years in prison for one count of sexual assault of a child. Jeffs continued to issue prophecies and proclamations while imprisoned. These were published as pamphlets by the FLDS Church.
