New Warren Jeffs photos show him casual, in front of St. Louis Arch
On the lam » He is not in the typical FLDS attire.

The latest batch of Warren Jeffs photographs released after his Texas trial shows the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints president in a T-shirt and shorts and standing in front of a famous landmark.

Jeffs appears to be in front of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. The photographs were taken by Jeffs and his followers while Jeffs was on the run from law enforcement in 2006. For much of that time, Jeffs was one of the FBI’s 10 most-wanted fugitives.

There also are photographs of Naomie Jessop, one of Jeffs’ favored plural wives and the woman who transcribed most of his dictations and day-to-day activities. They are both dressed in conventional clothing, despite the FLDS custom of wearing conservative garb consisting of long dresses for women and long sleeves and plain pants for men.

A San Angelo, Texas, jury last week convicted Jeffs of one count of aggravated sexual abuse and one count of sexual abuse for having sex with girls ages 12 and 15 he took as wives. The same jury on Tuesday issued Jeffs a sentence of life plus 20 years. Since the case adjourned, Texas court clerks have begun releasing copies of evidence admitted at trial.
