In Texas, Raymond Jessop will stand trial for sexual assault of a child. He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted. Mr. Jessop is the first of many polygamist sect members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The other defendants will face charges including failure to report child abuse, sexual assault and bigamy. The charges stem from the 2008 raid on the Yearning for Zion Ranch. Allegedly, Mr. Jessop impregnated a minor child that later went into labor. Authorities allege the adults in the compound would not seek medical care for the laboring child out of fear of child sex abuse being discovered in the ranch.
