State of Texas seizes ranch of imprisoned polygamist leader


By Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) – The sprawling Yearning for Zion Ranch in west Texas, where polygamist leader Warren Jeffs sexually assaulted young girls and justified it by claiming he was the "prophet of God," is now the property of the State of Texas. The Texas Department of Public Safety, which raided the Eldorado, Texas, ranch in April of 2008, said in a statement released on Thursday that the walled compound has been entered by law enforcement officers and "the residents have agreed to vacate the property." Jeffs was convicted of sexual assault in 2011. The statement noted that the state on January 6 secured a forfeiture judgment from the 51st Judicial District Court. "Law enforcement personnel are working with the occupants of the ranch to take all reasonable actions to assist with their departure of the property, to preserve the property, and to successfully execute the court order," the DPS said.
