ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- The leader of a Utah polygamous sect faces five years to life in prison for arranging the marriage of teenage cousins.

Warren Jeffs was convicted in September of rape as an accomplice for his role in the marriage of a 14-year-old follower and her 19-year-old cousin in 2001.

The Utah parole board will decide how long Jeffs remains in jail. The 51-year-old faces similar charges in Colorado.
