EXCLUSIVE: Elissa Wall wants Warren Jeffs tried again, interview on ABC. Wall testified that Jeffs forced her into a marriage with her adult first cousin when she was just 14 years old. Prosecutors claim that the forced marriage resulted in Wall’s rape.

Wall’s case serves as a reminder that the harmful practice of forced marriage of minors in the United States is not limited to immigrant communities, but rather impacts a broad range of cultural groups of diverse faiths, races, origins and ethnicities.
