Here we have 36-year-old FLDS cop, Rodney Holm (back row, centre), who was charged in Utah for bigamy and illegal sexual conduct with his 16-year-old third "wife", Ruth Stubbs. Ruth Stubbs, sister of his second "wife", Suzie Stubbs (to Rodney's right) bore three children by Holm. She later managed to escape, taking her children with her.
Annie Laree Steed Jessop (the daughter of Jeremiah Jessop, NOT Merril), pictured on her "wedding day". She was only 14 when she "married" Warren, who had already "married" her sister, Margaret Lucille Jessop, when she was 16.
In the FLDS, they like to keep marriage in the family. Here we have the "wedding" of Warren Steed Jeffs and his twentieth "wife"/cousin, Clea Maureen Steed. Clea Maureen was 17 when forced to become Warren's "wife".
Pro-FLDS propaganda featuring - who else - Barbara Steed Jessop, Merril Jessop, and the poor child-bride Merrianne Jessop. While this propaganda is trying to make it appear as though Merrianne was removed with no cause, the cause was clear: 24 days after she turned 12-years-old, Merrianne was "married" to Warren Jeffs.
FLDS Reading Primer, Alta Academy. "Sisters are Eternal Friends" talks about "sisters", but clearly refers to Sister-Wives, as "Father" is both the term children use to refer to their male parent, and the term women use for their husband. It is made clear in this text that "Father" will only allow women to do what he considers "proper". The first comprehension question is "Who is Master of a Home?" Full copy here…
The shocking truth about life inside Warren Jeffs' FLDS: Members tell how they believe cult leader is U.S. President and 15 men are responsible for fathering ALL children
FLDS kids. They are no longer allowed to attend public school due to a "revelation" by the prophet. What little education they are allowed, includes listening to droning recordings by the "prophet." They leave school early and provide free labor for FLDS companies. Many are illiterate. Boys are often removed from the community, many still children, and left to fend for themselves, because the older men want to add to their harem without competition. Girls marry very young. (J. Haase)
FLDS (Left to Right): Former-FLDS member (now prominent anti-trafficking activist) Rebecca Wall Musser ("married" at 19 to Rulon Jeffs), her mother Sharon Steed Wall Jessop ("married" - if we really must keep calling it that - to Fred M. Jessop when Lloyd Wall, father of her children, was excommunicated); and Jennifer Wall Jeffs Jeffs ("married" to Rulon in her early 20s, then "married" to Warren, but now apparently out-of-favour).
FLDS Warren Jeffs' child-"bride" Brenda Lei Fischer (granddaughter of - you guessed it - Merril Jessop), with her son by Jeffs. In the background, you can see the photos of Warren and Franken-Prophet Rulon Jeffs.
