HOUSTON (AP) - Texas prison officials are investigating whether
convicted polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs violated his inmate
telephone privileges with a couple of calls to a relative on
Christmas Day that may have been broadcast to an audience.
Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark says officials are trying to determine if Jeffs preached a sermon to his
congregation over a speaker phone. That would be a violation of
prison phone policy.
Clark says he doesn't know how prison officials became aware of
a possible violation except to note that all calls made on through
the agency's offender phone system are monitored and recorded.
Jeffs is serving life at a unit in East Texas. He was convicted
in August of sexually assaulting two of his underage brides.
