(KSL News) Lawyers for polygamist leader Warren Jeffs want the remaining court records sealed.

In making the request, lawyers for Jeffs said any releases could jeopardize a fair trial when he faces charges in Arizona.

Several documents, including transcripts of jailhouse conversations, were released earlier this month by a judge in 5th District Court in St. George.

In September, Jeffs was convicted of rape as an accomplice by that court.

He will be sentenced later this month.
