(KSL News) Just over a dozen FLDS children remain under court jurisdiction in Texas following a raid on the FLDS compound in Eldorado earlier this year.

More than 400 children were removed from their families during that raid, and all were placed under court jurisdiction until Texas Child Protective Services could determine if they were in danger of abuse.

The Deseret News reports today that all but 19 children have been "non-suited," meaning their cases are no longer being investigated.

The reasons vary from the children aging out of the system to parents taking appropriate steps to prevent abuse.
