SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs is expected back in court in West Texas after firing his attorney during his last appearance.
Jeffs is scheduled to be in court Monday for what would be his sixth pretrial appearance since being extradited to Texas in November. During his last appearance, Jeffs fired his attorney and state District Judge Barbara Walther appointed new counsel.
Texas prosecutors have accused the 55-year-old Jeffs of trying to stall his Feb. 21 trial on charges of aggravated sexual assault. The trial has already been pushed back once.
