The Greens
In numerous media interviews, Green, pictured here with his extended family, extolled the virtues of plural marriage, a practice which he and others in the FLDS believe will lead them to the highest kingdom of heaven. Green was convicted of child rape for impregnating one of his wives when she was 13 and he was 37, even though the victim objected to the charges. Green received the minimum sentence of five years, to be served concurrently with his five-year sentence for bigamy criminal non-support of his family.
