"It shows you a pretty distinct pattern, that it was pretty pervasive," he said.
State officials took custody of all 463 children at the ranch controlled by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, saying a pattern of teen girls forced into underage "spiritual" marriages and sex with much older men created an unsafe environment for the sect's children.
Under Texas law, children under the age of 17 cannot generally consent to sex with an adult. A girl can get married with her parent's permission at 16, but none of these girls are believed to have legal marriages under state law.
A call seeking comment from FLDS spokesman Rod Parker was not immediately returned.
The state has come under criticism for sweeping all the children, including nursing infants and teen boys, into foster care when only teen girls were in imminent danger of sexual abuse.
No one has been charged since the raid, which was prompted by a series of calls to a domestic abuse hotline, purportedly from a 16-year-old forced into a marriage recognized only by the sect with a man three times her age.
On Monday, CPS also revised its total count of children in state custody to 463, up one from Friday. Azar said the change resulted from finally getting the children out of the San Angelo Coliseum and into foster facilities around the state, where they were able to get a more accurate count.
Of those 463 children, 250 were girls and 213 were boys.
