Andrew Spencer, KSL Newsradio One group is praising the rape charges against the ex-husband of the woman at the center of the Warren Jeffs case. They say rape victims in polygamist towns are finally being listened to.

Elaine Tyler, the founder of The Hope Organization says legal cases like this keep the attention on what's going on. "It can't get swept back under the rug again. That's my huge concern, that after the trial of Warren is over here, that everything goes back to the way it was, and that can't happen," she said.

Cases like this one have brought up some painful memories, but through this process some former members will get a sense of justice. "They're ecstatic about it," Tyler said.
