Where in the world is polygamist religious leader Lyle Jeffs? According to his lawyer, he might as well have been raptured as far as the legal system is concerned.
Jeffs, a leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is accused of taking part in a massive scheme to funnel food stamp money into his church's coffers. He was on house arrest ahead of his trial until June, when he slipped free of his GPS monitoring bracelet and went on the run.
