Indicted FLDS Members Turn Themselves In

Five indicted members of the West Texas Polygamist sect have turned themselves into authorities. 

The five men were indicted last week with Warren Jeffs, the already jailed leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Jeffs and four of the men are charged with felony sexual assault of a child. The fifth was charged with failing to report child abuse. One of the five is also charged with bigamy.

State authorities say the men turned themselves into Schleicher County officials in Eldorado Monday afternoon.
