Warren Jeffs, who said he had been fasting since he was sentenced to life in prison for sexually assaulting underage girls, has been sedated and is responsive Tuesday, a Texas prison official said.
Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs was hospitalized in critical condition Monday after telling corrections officers he's fasted in the weeks since receiving a life sentence for sexually assaulting underage followers he took as spiritual brides, a prison official said.
Texas is changing one of the drugs used to conduct executions in the nation's busiest death penalty state due to a shortage of a sedative it's used for nearly three decades, officials said Wednesday.
spokeswoman Michelle Lyons said Monday that Jeffs, 56, was found to have broken the rules multiple times.
Ms. Lyons said Jeffs, the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, remained in critical but stable condition at East Texas Medical Center in Tyler.
