(KSL News) The FLDS Church could be in for big shake-up now that church leader Warren Jeffs is in prison.

A copyrighted story in the Deseret Morning News reports the polygamous sect may splinter without a leader.

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff said some FLDS Church members are standing behind Jeffs 100 percent. Others are looking for a new potential leader.

He added there may soon be divisions within FLDS enclaves across the West and in Canada.

Jeffs was convicted of rape as an accomplice and is now serving 10 years to life in prison. He faces similar charges in Arizona.
