Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for sexually assaulting two underage girls whom he claimed were his brides in so-called “spiritual marriages.”

The Texas jury gave Jeffs the maximum sentence on both counts. The panel announced its decision after deliberating for less than thirty minutes.

Jeffs, 55, — who often went on bizarre rants throughout his trial — stood quietly as the decision was read.

Jeffs — head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints  — was convicted last Thursday of sexually assaulting the two girls one of whom became pregnant with his child.

He acted as his own attorney during the emotionally-charged trial.
