(KUTV) A rape victim is asking for millions in restitution against FLDS leader Warren Jeffs.

Elissa Wall testified that in 2001, when she was 14, Jeffs forced her into an unwanted marriage in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She testified against Jeffs in a 2003 trial. She said today she believes the abuse is still practiced.

She talked about her rape in court and said she felt dirty, broken and worthless from repeated rape and condemnation.

Rod Decker has the story.
