Warren Jeffs out of hospital, back in prison

TEXAS -  Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs is now out of the hospital and back in a Texas State Prison.

He was discharged last night from the state prison hospital in Galveston.

You may remember Jeffs was brought from a Palestine prison to ETMC in Tyler earlier this month after becoming sick while fasting.

Officials with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice say Jeffs will receive further treatment in a prison infirmary until he's well enough to return to his cell.

Jeffs was sentenced to life in prison last month after his conviction for sexually assaulting underage girls.
