Polygamist Warren Jeffs, who led a breakaway Mormon sect, has been found guilty of child sex assaults against two underage girls with whom he said he had "spiritual marriages." He could be sentenced to up to 119 years in prison.
Jeffs, the head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has made loud outbursts claiming the government is trampling his rights. His sect has about 10,000 members in North America and is condemned by mainstream Mormons.
In what was supposed to have been his closing argument, Jeffs merely stood silently for over 20 minutes, then said "I am at peace" quietly and sat back down. Representing himself, he questioned one witness for more than four hours.
