FLDS Leader Agrees To Plea Deal.
The leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will serve no less than three years in prison for defrauding food stamps. As part of a plea deal with federal prosecutors, Lyle Jeffs also agreed to pay one-million dollars in restitution and in exchange, the feds dropped a money laundering charge. Jeffs also pleaded guilty to a failure to appear charge after being captured in South Dakota following a year on the lamb. In all, investigators believe the F-L-D-S defrauded more than 12-million dollars from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP.
