Warren Jeffs’ jail pleasures

August 12, 2011


EL DORADO, Texas — Warren Jeffs has been keeping busy in jail.

According to one of his former jailers, the Warren Jeffs’ jail pleasures more or less continuously while in custody. Rick Bradley, a guard at the county jail where Jeffs was kept in the weeks prior to his trial, told The Daily that the 55-year-old seemed to be suffering from sexual withdrawal and pleasured himself “a lot.” What does that mean, exactly — five times a day? More, Bradley said.

Fifteen times? “Sometimes more than that,” he told The Daily.

The guard said that the prisoner — who was not permitted conjugal visits — often played solo in full view of his guards. “We could see him,” Bradley said.

When his trial began late last month, Jeffs was transferred to a facility in the nearby town of San Angelo.

The lurid details of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints leader’s predatory sexual practices were revealed in his trial, which ended in a conviction and a sentence of life plus 20 years. Jeffs had dozens of under-aged wives whom he trained to meet his sexual needs. He also raped a 5-year-old boy, according to court testimony.

But he preached a hard line against masturbation.

One of Jeffs’ former students, Ezra Draper, testified that the cult leader told him that God was “offended” by masturbation.

Jeffs maintained his vigorous onanistic pace despite eating barely “enough to stay alive,” said Bradley. The self-proclaimed messiah rejected the jail’s standard meals, choosing to consume only small quantities of bread, water, and peanut-butter crackers.
