ELDORADO, Texas -- A law officer who took part in the 2008 raid of a West Texas polygamist group's ranch was the first to testify in a member's criminal trial.
Texas Ranger Nick Hannah took the stand Thursday in the Eldorado trial of 38-year-old Raymond Jessop, who's accused of sexual assault of a child.
Hannah described for the Schleicher County jury the layout of the Yearning for Zion Ranch that was raided in April 2008.
Hannah was asked to identify piles of documents, computers and other evidence seized from the ranch.
Jessop's charge stems from his alleged marriage to an underage girl. His trial is expected to last about two weeks.
Besides the assault charge, Jessop faces a bigamy charge, but that case is to be tried later.
