A total of 12 YFZ Ranch-related defendants have been indicted on sexual assault of a child, bigamy or other charges. Seven defendants have been convicted on felony charges and sentenced to prison. The other five defendants are awaiting trial.

All prosecutions are being handled by the Office of the Attorney General, which is working in cooperation with 51st Judicial District Attorney Steve Lupton.
