Jeffs finds attorney

Posted: Updated:

Polygamous leader Warren Jeffs now has a lawyer to defend him against charges of child sexual abuse stemming from a 2008 raid on a polygamous compound in El Dorado Texas.

He'd spent weeks searching for legal representation.  At a pretrial hearing Wednesday his new attorney asked the judge to delay the trial, saying he needs more time to prepare a defense.

Lesser charges against Jeffs were dropped in Arizona and a conviction overturned in Utah.
