FLDS Bishop Convicted

A former bishop has been convicted of performing an illegal wedding ceremony between his 12-year-old daughter and polygamist cult leader Warren Jeffs.

Jurors deliberated for about an hour and 20 minutes before finding Fredrick Merril Jessop guilty with a felony count of performing the illegal wedding between Jeffs and the underage girl in 2006.

The ceremony took place at the Yearning For Zion Ranch near Eldorado, owned by the Jeffs-led Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS).
