The woman who helped send a polygamous sect leader to prison is telling her story in a new book.

'Stolen Innocence' recounts the experiences of Elissa Wall, whose arranged marriage to a cousin was the basis for criminal charges against Warren Jeffs.

Jeffs is head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Last year, a jury in southern Utah convicted him of rape as an accomplice for his role in the marriage.

Jeffs was given two sentences of five years to life in prison

The book is coming out while a spotlight shines on Texas, where more than 400 children have been removed from a ranch belonging to Jeff’s' group.
