New indictments in polygamist case

September 23, 2008 2:43:47 PM PDT
A West Texas grand jury has issued five more indictments in the case against members of a polygamist sect. Schleicher County Clerk Peggy Williams says the grand jury issued five felony indictments against three individuals. She will not release any further information on the charges until the defendants have been served.

The new indictments issued Tuesday bring the total to 16 since authorities raided the Yearning For Zion Ranch looking for evidence of underage marriages and abuse in April.
