      We have updated the Apologetics Index entry on the Fundamentalist
      Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS):

      FLDS leader Warren Jeffs was recently indicted, and is being sought by
      the FBI.

      It's been a difficult spring for Warren Jeffs, the reclusive leader of
      a secretive polygamist sect that is building a large settlement and an
      imposing stone temple a few miles outside of town.

      In Texas, the governor recently signed into law measures aimed
      directly at the polygamists, including raising the age of consent to
      marry from 14 to 16 and outlawing "stepfather marriages."

      In Utah, a state judge in late May removed the trustees — including
      Jeffs — who had controlled the multimillion-dollar trust that owns
      most of the land, homes and businesses used by sect members.

      In Arizona, officials two weeks ago seized control of the public
      school district in Colorado City — Jeffs' former stronghold. The
      district, which had been run by the polygamists, is heavily in debt
      and assets are missing.

      And on June 10, in the first fruits of a long-running criminal
      investigation into underage marriages within the sect, a grand jury in
      Kingman, Ariz., indicted Jeffs on two felony charges.
