polygamist curses his prosecutors with ‘sickness & death’

now that’s a ‘holy hex’…

from nytimes: The leader of a polygamist sect said that unless his trial on sexual assault charges was halted, those involved would face “sickness and death.” The sect leader, Warren S. Jeffs, has been representing himself in his trial on charges that he sexually assaulted two under-age girls. He spoke for nearly an hour in court on Thursday, objecting to testimony about evidence that was seized by F.B.I. agents at his group’s compound in Texas. After Judge Barbara Walther overruled his objection, he told her he had to read a statement from God. Judge Walther dismissed the jury, and Mr. Jeffs, the head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, read a statement saying God demanded that the trial end. The judge told Mr. Jeffs she would remove him from court if he made such a reference in front of jurors.
