Some Charges Dropped Against Warren Jeffs

June 5, 2008, 10:41 AM by Alison Jarrett

Some Charges Dropped Against Warren Jeffs
An Arizona judge has dropped four of eight charges against polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs. 

In his ruling filed late Wednesday, Mohave County Superior Court Judge Steven Conn dismissed four incest charges against Jeffs at the request of the defense.

The charges stemmed from the arranged marriage of two girls younger than 18 and their older male relatives, one of whom was in his 50s.

Conn ruled that Arizona's incest law only applies if both participants in the sexual activity are older than 18, and that the law does not apply to half cousins.

Jeffs still faces four charges of sexual conduct with a minor in the arranged marriages of the two girls.

Jeffs remains jailed in Kingman, Arizona.
