'Prophet’s Prey'

Hosted by

In 2008, authorities raided the compound of the Fundamentalist Church of the Latter Day Saints - a polygamous, unsanctioned off-shoot of the Mormon Church. The media descended on the “Yearning for Zion” Ranch in Texas and watched as more than 400 children were bused out by Child Protective Services. 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.
