Warrant issued for Warren Jeffs' former bodyguard

The Associated Press/September 28, 2011

St. George -- A judge in St. George has issued an arrest warrant for a man who once worked as a bodyguard for polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs.

The Spectrum reports that 42-year-old William R. Jessop is being sought for failing to appear Wednesday for hearings to schedule payments he owes private investigator Samuel Brower. Brower is owed legal expenses after winning a claim that Jessop subjected him to a frivolous court filing.

Jessop's attorney says his client is in Switzerland on business.

The court case between the men involves a restraining order Jessop sought claiming Brower trespassed on Jessop's property.

Judge G. Rand Beacham noted Jessop has missed two court appearances.

He set another hearing for Nov. 23.

Jeffs was convicted and sentenced to life in prison on child sex assault charges in Texas.
