A Texas judge has ordered that 416 children, removed from a polygamous Christian sect in police raids, remain in state custody for genetic testing.
Welfare officers had told the judge they had been unable to determine which parents the children were related to. The ruling comes after officials said some of the girls may have had babies when they were just 13 years old. The closed community was first raided amid reports that a 16-year-old girl was physically and sexually abused.
Detectives are looking for evidence of a marriage between the girl and a 50-year-old man. She is reported to have been beaten and raped by her older husband and to be pregnant again eight months after giving birth to her first child when she was 15.
And all these suppose to happening in the name of God!!!
