Polygamous-sect teen refuses to say where baby is

A teenage member of a polygamous sect refused Tuesday to tell a judge where her baby is so authorities can collect a DNA sample and determine whether the father is an adult. The girl repeatedly refused at a court hearing to answer the judge and attorneys for Texas Child Protective Services about the infant's whereabouts. "She is living out of state. ... I just don't want anyone to know where she is," said the 17-year-old, who was wearing a dark blue prairie dress and her hair braided back, the typical style of female members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The hearing was halted as attorneys for both sides met in the judge's chambers Tuesday afternoon to decide what to do next. State officials believe the girl was married to a man in FLDS when she was 14, attorney John Dolezal said in the Nov. 14 motion requesting a court order. In Texas, someone under age 17 generally cannot consent to sex with an adult.
