Polygamist sect grand jury issues 3 more indictments

Associated Press/August 22, 2008

Eldorado, Texas - A grand jury issued three new felony indictments Thursday against members of a polygamist sect raided in April.

Schleicher County Clerk Peggy Williams confirmed the grand jury issued indictments against three people. She would not say who was indicted or what the indictments allege, other than that they are felonies.

A spokesman for the Attorney General's Office, which is handling the prosecution of the case, also declined to comment on what the indictments allege or who the accused are.

The indictments, which followed a day of women in prairie dresses again filing in and out of the grand jury meeting room, were the second set issued since the grand jury began meeting in June on the case. Six indictments were issued last month.
