    A sick sad story. Over at last. Hope the girls he messed with are able to get help.

    Goodbye Mr. Jeffs.

    For your crimes against those young girls, may you rot.

    I hope he spends every second of the rest of his life out in the general prison population. That's what he deserves.

    I also hope that there is some way to keep him incommunicado from the people of the FLDS community so, hopefully, they can learn what it is to live a more normal life. He would try to keep them prisoner through his agents. They don't need (or deserve) that. I especially hope there's some way to help the children.

    He can close his limp mouth now.

    Boy, this guy is a real charmer. What a terrible person you are. What terrible deeds you done did. And thanks a lot for all the terrible publicity for all people even vaguely related to Mormonism. I think I just vomited a little bit in my mouth.

    I can't help wondering what about the rest of the FLDS folks. Did they learn a lesson from this, or because they are not allowed to watch TV or listen to the radio they simply don't know what happened? They were probably told that their prophet is being persecuted by the gentiles and they must stick together even more than before. I am practically positive that Jeffs will continue to keep in touch with them through phone conversations and they will continue to follow him. I also think that none of them know the vileness of this man and that most of them never will. They think they are doing the will of God and that the whole world is against them. Perhaps they think that because the end of the world is coming, there is an increased persecution of their faith not realizing the depth of evil Jeffs had fallen into. At least he is in jail. They should cut him off from all outside contacts. But even that might not make any difference to the FLDS. They will continue to believe.

    I mean no slight to Utah law enforcement when I say that I am proud of the way Texas law enforcement has handled this case, as well as the restraint and common sense exhibited by Child Protective Services in promptly assessing cases and returning children to their mothers.

    I believe these 7 cases will serve as a notice to the FLDS that they had better conform to the laws of the land.

    Warren Jeffs received a just sentence.

    A just and correct sentence seeing all of the evidence. May he rot where he is hopefully going to go. You are right, now that we know, there are many who would hang you from the highest tree, like you stated.

    Thank you Texas for doing what Utah couldn't.

    "Among Jeffs' most eccentric orders was banning the color red. Rebecca Musser, a former FLDS member who was once a wife of Jeffs' father, showed up to the sentencing in a deep red dress."

    haha You go girl!

    He got exactly what he deserves. I'm not sure how long he'll last in prison. Those who commit crimes against children are NOT tolerated. Remember what happened to Jeffrey Dalmer? Even with protections, someone got him.

    I don't think he will be warmly received by the Texas inmates at state pen.

    The search warrant was valid. So is the life sentence. He will not be popular in prison he will probably spend it in solitary for his own safety.

    What a nut. All he need do is appeal and mention that Texas Law Enforcement didn't have a search warrant. Maybe they don't need one in Texas.

    Can you say Casey Anthony?
