Convicted polygamist leader hospitalized in Texas

HOUSTON (AP) — Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs has been hospitalized after not eating or drinking enough since his recent conviction on child sexual assault charges, a prison official said Monday.

The 55-year-old head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is in critical but stable condition, Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons told The Associated Press. It is uncertain how long he will be hospitalized.

Jeffs attorney Emily Detoto told the AP that he was taken to East Texas Medical Center in Tyler on Sunday night. She says he "hasn't been feeling well" but wouldn't elaborate.

A hospital spokeswoman said she could not release any information about whether Jeffs was a patient. More
