FLDS leader Warren Jeffs off the hook with Arizona

What appears to be a break for polygamist Warren Jeffs, the former leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, clears the way for Texas to extradite the man to face more serious charges.

Jeffs is being returned to Utah where he is appealing two five-year-to-life sentences in connection with arranging marriages between young girls and older men.

Arizona made the right move after holding Jeffs for trial over a longer time period than any sentence he might have received on the Arizona charges. Let Utah and Texas spend their money prosecuting and incarcerating this false prophet and flim-flam artist.
