Lyle Jeffs, brother of the imprisoned leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Warren Jeffs, was arrested last night in South Dakota. Lyle Jeffs was one of eleven people in the polygamous sect accused of food-stamp fraud and money laundering. Authorities have been looking for Jeffs for nearly a year.

I just spoke with Nate Carlisle. He’s the polygamy reporter for The Salt Lake Tribune and has been following this. He talks about what this arrest means and what impact it can have on the case and on the FLDS church.
