Elissa Wall claims that she was raped by her husband Allen Steed when she was 14. She describes these events in Stolen Innocence, her memoir of life in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The sect's leader, Warren Jeffs, had two convictions overturned for rape as an accomplice on Tuesday. We talk with Wall about her experience in the church and her feelings about the latest turn of legal events in the case.
