(KSL News) The woman who may have prompted a raid on the FLDS Ranch in Texas won't go to trial until next year.
The Deseret News reports 33-year-old Rozita Swinton waived her right to a speedy trial at a Colorado Springs court hearing yesterday. Her trial is now set for January 2009.
Swinton is accused of making a phony abuse call to Colorado Springs police and pretending to be a drugged and sexually abused 13-year-old chained in a basement.
Texas authorities suspect Swinton also made the call that sparked the April raid on the YFZ Ranch, claiming to be a 16-year-old pregnant girl in an abusive polygamous marriage.
