'Prophet’s Prey' In 2008, authorities raided the compound of the Fundamentalist Church of the Latter Day Saints - a polygamous, unsanctioned off-shoot of the Mormon Church.

Since then, six FLDS members have been convicted of various crimes, including the self-appointed prophet of the sect, Warren Jeffs. Jeffs is serving life plus 20 years for two felony counts of child sexual assault. But according to a new documentary, he still runs the FLDS from prison - and the church still has 10,000 members.
