Prosecutors are introducing evidence of so-called other “bad acts” committed by Jeffs since at least 1989.
The jury also heard Saturday from Brent Jeffs, Warren Jeffs’ now 28-year-old nephew. The man was in tears as he told Texas District Court jurors about being raped by his uncle when he was 5.
He said Jeffs pulled him aside at a family meeting, took him into a restroom, ordered him to kneel like he was praying, then raped him.
“He told me this was God’s will, this was God’s work,” the nephew said.
Warren Jeffs also warned the boy that, “this is between me and you and God and no one else needs to know about it.”
The Tribune does not typically identify victims of sexual assault. However, Brent Jeffs has been public about the allegations against his uncle.
In 2003, he sued Warren Jeffs but settled out of court for 3 acres of land in the FLDS’ Utah-Arizona border community.
Yup you know there had to be more to this story. Lets see , coercion, the god card, the secrets, the making the kid feel guilty like he wasnt doing the higher power's will, the guilt payoff, the fact he was a person of trust, incest, no contrition. Yup i think thats about it, oh what are the chances Brent is still in the church? So add being an outsider to his community, mental anquish and the spectre of being another man struggling with the effectst of CSA.
Have a nice life Mr. Man, your gonna love jail. i bet you will become someones brother wife.
Sorry if this triggers, i am just too pissed - off for words.
