A West Texas grand jury will receive testimony next week in the criminal investigation of a polygamist sect raided earlier this year.
That's according to newspaper reports.

The grand jury plans appeared to be revealed Friday in a filing that secured a temporary restraining order for the 16 year old daughter of Warren Jeffs, leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
The teenager's court-appointed attorney sought the order against sect spokesman Willie Jessop, who Natalie Malonis accused of intimidating and harassing her client.
In her request, Malonis said prosecutors could not find the teenager Thursday and serve a subpoena compelling her appearance before a grand jury.

The request was obtained by The Dallas Morning News and the
Houston Chronicle.
