It’s a story Dr. Phil has been deeply involved in for over 13 years, and with an estimated 10,000 current members, one he vows to continue to cover until the alleged abuse in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints stops.
It’s been more than a decade since FLDS prophetic leader Warren Jeffs was arrested and sentenced to life in prison, but despite Jeffs being behind bars, some of his devoted followers are still active and dispersed across the country. Today, Dr. Phil speaks with two former FLDS members who take viewers inside this controversial religious group. Marirlynn claims her sexual abuse, all in the name of God, began at just 4 years old. Ian says Warren Jeffs is his uncle. He says Jeffs told him, as a little boy, he’d “burn in hell” if he didn’t obey. Ian says he was kicked out at 15 and hasn’t spoken with his mother or father in eight years.
