Grand Jury recesses in Eldorado, will reconvene in July, no indictments yet.
A Texas grand jury recessed last night after hearing allegations of sexual abuse in the polygamist FLDS sect.
The grand jury is considering criminal charges arising from the raid on the sect's Yearning for Zion (YFZ) Ranch in April. FLDS members have denied abuse allegations.
The grand jury reviewed evidence for eight hours, and recessed without issuing indictments. It won't resume until late next month.
The state of Texas removed over 450 children from the YFZ Ranch in Eldorado that an underage girl was being forced to marry and have sex. The children were placed in foster homes around the state.
But the Texas Supreme Court later ruled the evidence of abuse was insufficient, and children must be returned to their parents while the investigation continues.
