POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — A polygamous man who oversaw an Idaho home where nine boys were sent on repentance missions by Warren Jeffs has pleaded guilty to three counts of child abuse. The Idaho State Journal reports that Nathan C. Jessop entered his plea Thursday in Pocatello. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail and two years’ probation. The nine boys were pulled out of a Pocatello home last month after the alleged abuse was reported by a boy who escaped.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that a police report shows Jessop is accused of not feeding the boys, hitting them and sending them into the cold without jackets. Jessop told police the boys are members of Jeffs’ Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who were sent to him after getting in trouble.
