HILDALE -- Washington County officials are planning to auction a compound belonging polygamist leader Warren Jeffs to pay a judgment to a former spokesman for the sect Jeffs led.
Willie Jessop, a former spokesman for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, sued Jeffs and other leaders of the sect alleging they arranged a break in at his business where several computers, hard drives and other property were stolen.
The FLDS leaders did not respond to the suit and a judge awarded Jessop with a $30 million judgment.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports officials will auction the $2.65 million, 6-acre complex in Hildale on April 25.
Jeffs is serving life in prison in Texas after he was convicted of sexually assaulting two of his underage bridges.
