Warren Jeffs

Warren Steed Jeffs is the president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

In August, 2011, a Texas jury convicted polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs of child sexual assault Thursday in a case stemming from two young followers he took as brides in what his church calls "spiritual marriages."

Though Jeffs was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years, most of his followers continue to view him as God's prophet -- and he continues to rule his sect with an iron fist.
