At age 18, Carolyn Jessop was the fourth wife of a man more than three times her age and had eight children in 12 years. After 17 years in the abusive, bigamist marriage, she fled Colorado City with her children, ages two to 15. Jessop talks with Merry Lucero about her flight from the fundamentalist Mormon community and her book, “Escape”. Plus we talk with state representative David Lujan about what can be done about bigamist communities here in Arizona.
