Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs discharged from hospital, returned to East Texas prison

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice says polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs is no longer hospitalized and has been returned to prison in East Texas.

Agency spokesman Robert Hurst confirmed Thursday that Jeffs has been discharged from Hospital Galveston, a TDCJ facility southeast of Houston.

Hurst declined to provide the reason for Jeffs' hospitalization, citing medical privacy laws.

Jeffs was admitted March 11 and discharged Monday. He returned to the Powledge unit in Palestine (PAL'-uhs-teen) to continue serving a life sentence.

The 58-year-old Jeffs is the ecclesiastical head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was convicted in 2011 of sexually assaulting two of his child brides, ages 12 and 15.

He also was hospitalized shortly after his conviction when he became ill while fasting.
