Default Prophet (pbuh) Guilty of Child Molestation

SAN ANGELO — Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs was convicted on child sexual assault charges stemming from the 2008 raid on his sect's Texas compound.

The case was sent to the jury earlier Thursday, after the polygamist leader stood mostly mute for his closing argument.

Jeffs, who acted as his own attorney, stood expressionless, staring at the floor, for all but a few seconds of the half hour he was allotted. At one point he mumbled, “I am peace,” and said no more.


Prosecutors used DNA evidence to show Jeffs fathered a child with a 15-year old, and played an audio recording of what they said was him sexually assaulting a 12-year-old.

“You might have asked yourselves,” Nichols said, “a lot of people may ask, why would someone record sex? ... This individual considers himself to be the prophet. Everything he did, hour after hour, he was required to keep a record of that.”



Why is this man's 'religious liberty' being violated? Isn't it the case that prohibiting something that happens to coincide with some religious practice is a violation of 'religious liberty'?
