"Jeffs, the head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is charged with two felony counts of rape by accomplice in the arranged religious union of a 14-year-old follower and her 19-year-old cousin in 2001. . .

Jeffs, 51, is accused of coercing the marriage of the 14-year-old, who is now an adult, over her objections. She has testified that Jeffs told her it was her religious duty to have sex to produce children.”

Is this tantamount to a shotgun marriage?
The article doesn’t say: was the girl an orphan?
