Former FLDS Property In Hildale Vandalized

An Arizona man has pleaded guilty to doing $10,000 in damage to Hildale property that once belonged to polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs.

The Spectrum reports that 23-year-old Oliver William Darger of Colorado City acknowledged he illegally entered and vandalized the 6-acre property near the Utah-Arizona border.

Darger and an accomplice are accused of defacing walls with markers, strewing toilet paper around the floors, discharging and damaging fire extinguishers, breaking windows and damaging doors and ceiling fans in several buildings within the Hildale city block.

In exchange for his plea to felony criminal mischief and two misdemeanor counts of trespassing, Darger was granted 36 months of probation with credit for 60 days already served in jail.

Authorities say Darger also must pay $10,000 in restitution through the court.
