Warren Jeffs sentenced to life in prison

The AP report, as published in the New York Times, is here. An excerpt follows:
[Jeffs] stood quietly as the decision by the jury, which deliberated less than a half hour, was read, giving him the maximum sentence on both counts. The sentences are to be served consecutively. Mr. Jeffs maintained he was being persecuted for his religious beliefs.
