Polygamist child custody case winds down

Polygamist child custody case winds down

The massive custody case that swept 439 children from a polygamist sect's West Texas ranch into foster care has largely evaporated, with Texas authorities dropping all but a few dozen cases against parents.

All but 37 children from the Yearning For Zion Ranch in Eldorado have been released from court oversight after Child Protective Services found they had not been abused or that their parents could protect them from the risk of future abuse. Only one girl has been returned to foster care.
