Raymond Merril Jessop has been the only man on trial the past two weeks in Schleicher County.
Even the eyeball-torturing lighting in the 51st Judicial District Courtroom couldn’t trick anyone into seeing 11 other shadows cast behind his as he sat quietly at the defense table. Jessop is the first to be tried among 12 members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints facing charges in the county.
