Child welfare officials scrambled to find foster homes for dozens of girls removed from a secretive West Texas religious retreat built by polygamist leader Warren Jeffs after a 16-year-old living there complained of physical abuse. By April 8 Texas had taken 416 children into protective custody. Some 140 women came along voluntarily. It was later reported that over half of the teenage girls from the Yearning for Zion Ranch had children or were pregnant. The number of 14-17 year old girls with children was later reduced as ages became confirmed. On May 22 a state appeals court ruled that authorities had no right to take children from the polygamist compound. In 2009 jurors convicted sect member Raymond Jessop (38) of sexually assaulting a girl, who became pregnant at age 16. By 2012 legal costs associated with the case approached $20 million.
