So glad he was tried in Texas. I don’t think a Utah jury would find the same. Too much polygamist history here. The Salt Lake Tribune has the details on the sentencing:

In a closing statement given Tuesday morning, prosecutor Eric Nichols told the jury the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints leader was a man who "perverted a religion to his own ends" and treated women and children not as human beings but as "property for sexual gratification and child bearing."
