2 of 3 convicted B.C. judge in child bride case

Two of three people accused in a child bride case have been found guilty by a British Columbia judge.

Brandon Blackmore and his former wife Gail Blackmore have been convicted of taking a 13-old-girl into the United States for a sexual purpose.

The court heard the girl was married to Warren Jeffs. He's the 60-year-old prophet of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who is now serving a life sentence in Texas.

British Colombia Supreme Court Justice Paul Pearlman found James Oler not guilty Friday, saying he couldn't prove that the man crossed the border with a 15-year-old girl. She was later married to a member of the trio's polygamous church.

All three were accused of taking girls across the border for a sexual purpose in 2004.
