9/26/07: Fundamentalist Mormonism

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Polygamist-sect leader Warren Jeffs was relying on an argument made by his attorneys that his trial for arranging the marriage of an under-aged girl was really about religious persecution. Yesterday, a jury dismissed the idea and convicted him on two felony charges. The jurors said the case was really about the age of the bride: she was 14 at the time. We're talking about the case and about the fallout of the verdict. We're also looking at the history and the future of fundamentalist Mormonism.

Read the Salt Lake Tribune's coverage of the Warren Jeffs' trial and the issue of polygamy.
