SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - FLDS leader Warren Jeffs faces an extradition hearing on July 27.

The hearing will be held in West Jordan before 3rd District Court Judge Terry Christiansen.


Jeffs was recently transported to Utah to serve his sentence for a 2007 rape-as-an-accomplice conviction.

Jeffs had been awaiting trial in Arizona on similar charges, but prosecutors dropped the case, and he was returned to the Utah State Prison 2 weeks ago.

Jeffs now faces trial in Texas, where a 2008 raid on the YFZ ranch near El Dorado resulted in several court cases, including allegations of arranged marriages between Jeffs his male followers and several underage girls.
