Warren Jeffs has begun serving his life sentence behind bars, and in these shocking new photos, the convicted rapist has had his head shaved for his prison stay.
Jeffs, 55, is the polygamist cult leader who was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl and sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl, both of whom he claimed were his “spiritual wives.” The older girl gave birth to his child.
The Texas jury gave the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints life plus 20 years sentences after a horrifying trial where multiple witnesses testified about the long term sexual abuse perpetrated by Jeffs.
The prosecution played shocking audio tapes of Jeffs instructing young girls how to please him sexually, having sex with underage girls, and telling them that the abuse would bring them closer to God.
A photograph released Tuesday showed 50 young girls who were all “married” to Jeffs posing in front of a picture of him, each smiling, wearing pastel dresses with prairie girl hairstyles.
Jeffs kept detailed notes and even videotaped himself having sex with the underage girls in a special bed in the temple on the cult property in Texas.
In one document presented in court Jeffs wrote in his journal why he was hiding his relationships. “If the world knew what I was doing, they would hang me from the highest tree,”.
