According to Texas prison officials, an investigation is ongoing in whether convicted polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs violated his inmate telephone privileges. After being convicted in August of sexually assaulting two minors, Jeffs is now serving a life sentence. Officials are trying to determine if Jeffs preached a sermon to his congregation over speakerphone, according to a Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman.
