Colorado City Woman Escapes Forced Marriage

A 26 year-old Colorado City woman who was compelled into marriage at the age of 14 by FLDS leader Warren Jeffs, and held against her will for more than 10 years has been granted temporary custody of her six children and left the community, Attorney General Tom Horne announced today.

Ruby Jessop was granted temporary custody of her six children and was able to leave Colorado City earlier this month. Her departure was made possible because Mohave County Sheriff’s Deputies have a greater presence in Colorado City to provide law enforcement protection.$420,000 for added patrols by Deputies was made available by Horne to Mohave County in 2012.

“It is unacceptable that anyone would be married against her will and forced to live in a community in which she feels unsafe,“ Horne said.“Ruby Jessop was forced into marriage by FLDS leader Warren Jeffs who compelled her to marry her second-cousin Haven Barlow in 2001. Her exact whereabouts were unknown for years until very recently when she was able to escape the town. Because of the $420,000 I made available from this office to the Mohave County Board of Supervisors, and which the Board authorized for Sheriff Tom Sheahan, more Deputies are now working in Colorado City. Those Deputies were instrumental in making sure that Ruby and her young children could safely leave.”
