FLDS Couple Seeks Emergency Order to Stop Infant Seizure, Say Perry & Haas
Date:5/13/2008

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorneys for a married couple who lived in the fundamentalist Mormon community in Eldorado, TX, will ask a Bexar County District Court judge today for an emergency order to prevent the state from taking away their infant child, who is still nursing, when he turns a year old on Thursday.

Attorneys are filing a petition with the presiding judge at 3:30 p.m. seeking an emergency injunction to keep the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services from removing Joseph Steed Jessop Jr. from the care of his mother, Lori Jessop, 25. The petition also demands that Lori and her husband, Joseph Steed Jessop Sr., 27, be told the whereabouts of their other two children, and that the court schedule a hearing to determine whether the state can legally continue to hold the children.

According to the petition, a social worker told Mrs. Jessop that the child would be removed from her care when he turned a year old. All three children are being held without the authority of any court order, according to attorneys.

Attorney for Joseph Jessop Sr. is Rene Haas, of Corpus Christi, a former Nueces County district judge and highly successful trial lawyer. She is board certified in both criminal and family law. Lori Jessop is represented by Nancy DeLong, a Corpus Christi attorney with Texas RioGrand Legal Aide, Inc.

After the filing, Joseph Jessop will make a brief comment at the courthouse. Haas will make a statement and answer questions.

Background

Lori and Joseph Jessop met in Hildale, Utah, where they were members of the Fundamentalists Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). They married when she was 18 and he was 20. Both are certified Emergency Medical Technicians. They moved to the FLDS community in Eldorado outside San Angelo, TX, in 2005.

They have three children, a daughter, Ziana Glo, 4, who was born in Utah, son, Joseph Edson, 2 1/2, and son Joseph Steed Jr., who
