Does the FLDS Church in Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey still exist?

Netflix documentary Keep Sweet: Pray And Obey investigates the fundamentalist Mormon denomination FLDS led by Warren Jeffs, who has been serving a life sentence since 2011.

Keep Sweet: Pray And Obey focuses on Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS). It includes testimonies by young women who were raised in the sect.

Jeffs personally had at least 78 wives, 24 of them under-age at the time of his arrest in 2011, according to former US attorney special prosecutor Angela Goodwin as reported by the Independent.

Originally located in Arizona, FLDS expanded into Utah, Texas, British Columbia and South Dakota. Overall, the church had a reported 10,000 members. Jeff’s father, Rulon, was FLDS leader until his death in 2002.
