(KCPW News) More than three years have passed since the Yearning for Zion Ranch in Texas was raided, bringing massive international attention to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Now the church will be getting more attention as its leader, Warren Jeffs, goes on trial for charges he’s facing in that state. Lindsay Whitehurst, polygamy beat reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune, is about to head to West Texas to cover that trial. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked her what charges Jeffs is facing.
The Tribune will have extensive coverage of the upcoming Jeffs trial on Sunday, in print and online at SLTrib.com.
