Meet LeRoy Jeffs, Rulon Jeffs Son
LeRoy Jeffs is the oldest son of late FLDS President Rulon T. Jeffs and his fourth wife, Marilyn Steed. He had a total of 65 siblings from his father’s marriage.
He is the full brother of Warren, Lyle, Nephi, and Seth Jeffs among others. Sources revealed that the members of the Jeffs family are considered polygamist elite. Meanwhile, FLDS members consider their members to be of “royal blood”.
Warren’s inner circle included LeRoy and his full brothers. LeRoy and his brothers assisted Warren in running and administering the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints while “the prophet” received a life sentence for offenses linked to taking young girls as spouses.
Where Is LeRoy Jeffs Today?
In 2006, LeRoy Jeffs was held in the Central Arizona Detention Center in Florence along with other three FLDS members. He had refused to testify before a federal grand jury convened in Arizona to investigate Warren and the church. Leroy was privy to details about the secretive church, including its property holdings, tithing information, and detailed records of illegal plural marriages that occurred among the faith’s estimated 10,000 members in the border towns of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz.
The authorities allegedly located him in Oklahoma.
A year before that his younger brother Warren had kicked him out and sent him to Oklahoma to “repent”. Warren also reassigned Leroy’s wives and children to other men. LeRoy joined the FLDS church again in 2016.
LeRoy Jeffs Age
In June 2022, LeRoy Jeffs was 69 years old.
LeRoy Jeffs Wife
Evidence gathered by Texas law enforcement lists LeRoy as having married four girls between the ages of 14 and 16 from 1998 through 2004. He later married Alicia Rohbock after falling in love with her and had two daughters; RuLeecia and Rachel. His daughter who is now 18 and 17 years old, in that respect, is living in Hildale, Utah.
After LeRoy was kicked out of the church by Warren, his wife Alicia married Seth, his younger brother.
Alicia was also moved to a home in Colorado City and was subjected to shunning and other emotional abuses “throughout 2011 and 2012”. She didn’t leave the community and kept enduring all she could for a long time before she was “utterly broken”. She then approached Seth about leaving the church, being admitted into the “United Order” for two weeks, and finally receiving “a revelation” from Jeffs that she was to be expelled.
When Alicia Rohbock’s children were transported to the Yearning for Zion Ranch (YFZ) in Texas, she had to face even more pain. She had to stay back when the kids left with Seth because just a few people were transported to that ranch. Alicia wasn’t summoned back until a police raid in April 2008 to claim the children from Child Protective Services.
