On the show, the couple would answer questions about Elissa Wall's painful life as a member of the polygamous sect, part of the church of the Latter Day Saints, and her subsequent testimony that put LDS leader Warren Jeffs in prison. Jeffs forced Elissa to marry her first cousin when she was only 14.
The following excerpt is from ABC News Website http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=3673963&page=1:
Wall is also pursuing a civil case against Warren Jeffs. She said if she's awarded any money, she will start an organization and safe houses to help other girls escape polygamy.
...U.S. polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs was convicted of being an accomplice to rape for arranging a marriage between an unwilling 14-year-old girl, Walls, and her 19-year-old first cousin, Allen Steed. Jeffs faces five years to life in prison for each of the two felony charges of accomplice to rape. Steed was charged with rape in an arranged marriage to his 14-year-old cousin was released on bail Thursday.
[Lamont] Barlow said Jeffs should spend the rest of his life in jail. "I think if he was to receive one month in jail for every family he destroyed, and I mean a family unit, I think he would spend the rest of his life in jail," Barlow said. "I don't want to come across as vindictive and hateful, but there are a lot of people who have been extremely displaced and harmed by this man."
