Polygamist Leader Warren Jeffs Discusses Group Sex

SAN ANGELO, Texas, Aug. 3 (UPI) — Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs instructed his plural wives on group sex and being comfortable nude, a tape played in a Texas courtroom revealed.

The December 2004 recording of Jeffs was one of the last pieces of evidence presented by the prosecution at his trial on charges of sexual assault of a child, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Wednesday.

The charges against the 55-year-old leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints stem from marriages to girls 12 and 14-years-old.

In the 90-minute recording, Jeffs instructs 12 of his plural wives on group sex, becoming comfortable nude and how they should care for their body hair in what he called a “training.”

Texas Ranger Nick Hanna testified that the wives all undressed and put on white robes as Jeffs began to speak, the San Angelo (Texas) Standard Times reported.

Among the wives in the group was the 14-year-old girl whose parents brought her to be married to Jeffs.

Records presented in court indicate that Jeffs, who was 48 at the time, unofficially “married” the 14-year-old and reportedly fathered her child.

The prosecution was expected to rest its case Wednesday.
