Polygamous Mormon splinter group leader was charged with an accomplice to rape for performing a wedding between a 14-year-old girl and her 19-year-old cousin.

Warren Jeffs, 51, could get life in prison after a trial that put attention on a renegade community along the Arizona-Utah line where as many as 10,000 of Jeffs' followers practice plural marriage and revere him as a prophet with dominion over their salvation.
