(ST. GEORGE, UT) – The former property of FLDS leader Warren Jeffs is up for auction today. Authorities say the 6-acre compound is being sold to pay off a lawsuit awarded to Jeffs’ former bodyguard, Willie Jessop. Last year a judge awarded Jessop a $26 million judgment because Jeffs had reportedly destroyed Jessop’s excavating business, stole his property, and harassed his family. A 10-foot cinder block fence surrounds the compound, complete with several buildings and security cameras.
