Bentley-driving Mormon with 20 wives even disgusted Warren Jeffs trends now

The Bentley-driving Mormon 'prophet' with 20 wives including some as young as nine is so extreme in his views that he even repulsed notorious child rapist Warren Jeffs.

According to a newly-filed FBI affidavit, Jeffs recently denounced Samuel Rappylee Bateman in a letter to his followers within the church. 

Bateman has been charged on multiple counts of child abuse for allegedly keeping 20 wives, including girls as young as nine. 

He remains in custody in Washington, but was arrested for crimes in Arizona

Bateman leads a splinter group of the radical Mormon offshoot Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or FLDS.

Notorious child rapist Warren Jeffs, left with one of his victims, remains in prison on his own child abuse charges. He recently denounced Samuel Rappylee Bateman from the church, telling followers Bateman was too 'extreme'

Jeffs, 67, is still in prison for crimes. 

He served as the president of FLDS from 2002 until 2004, when he was hit with the first of a long list of charges relating to his treatment of children.

Not only did he marry children himself, but he also orchestrated arranged marriages between adults in the church and kids. 

It's unclear if Bateman's  attitude towards young girls was what repulsed him enough for Jeffs to denounce him. 

Bateman, 46, was arrested earlier this year on obstruction charges but new legal filings over recent weeks have revealed how grotesque his alleged abuse of children has been. 

FBI Agent Dawn A. Martin, citing witness statements, writes in the filing that Bateman 'began to proclaim he was a prophet' and declared his intention to marry his own teenage daughter in 2019.

The affidavit states that Bateman has since gathered 'approximately 50 followers and more than 20 wives, many of whom are minors, mostly under the age of 15.'

Evidence cited in the affidavit includes recordings of Bateman himself, speaking to a couple in Colorado City, Arizona, who do outreach to the polygamy community there and are filming a documentary. 

In one example cited in the document, Bateman told the couple that 'Heavenly Father' had instructed him in early November 2021 to 'give the most precious thing he has, his girls' virtue,' to three of his adult male followers.
