Jeffs' Attorneys Seek to Question Texas Rangers about Eldorado Raid

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Attorneys for polygamist leader Warren Jeffs are asking a judge to order that Texas Rangers speak to them about their raid of the sect's ranch in Eldorado, Texas.

In court filings this week, Jeff's attorneys say they've made repeated attempts to schedule interviews with the law enforcement agents but without success.

Prosecutors say they have no plans to use evidence seized from the ranch and have asked the judge to deny the motion.

Jeffs awaits trial in Arizona on four counts of being an accomplice to sexual conduct with a minor. Those charges stem from the marriages of two teenage girls and their adult male relatives.

Jeff's attorneys say they want to know whether Arizona officials have been "tainted" by exposure to the evidence seized at the ranch.
