The State has dropped another custody case involving the polygamist compound near Eldorado.

The case involves the daughter of the Church's jailed leader Warren Jeffs.

Child welfare workers say she's 17, and doesn't need protection from the courts anymore.

He's now 37 and indicted on charges of bigamy and child rape.
