KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) A sheriff's spokeswoman in Arizona says polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs is doing well just days after he was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital for an undisclosed medical problem.
The 52-year-old president of the Fundamentalist LDS Church was flown to Las Vegas Tuesday after being found weak and convulsive in his cell. He was returned to the Mohave County jail in Kingman late Wednesday.
Spokeswoman Trish Carter says Jeffs spent part of Friday walking around the jail exercise yard and was drinking plenty of fluids and eating. She says he "appears to be doing just fine."
Jeffs is awaiting trial in Arizona on charges of being an accomplice to sexual conduct with a minor stemming from marriages he allegedly arranged between underage girls and older men. He's already been convicted of two counts of felony rape as an accomplice in Utah.
