SHARE `SISTER’ PLEADS GUILTY

A 29-year-old member of an alleged polygamist group pleaded guilty Thursday to a second-degree felony charge that she sexually exploited a girl under the age of 14.

Kracyn Jones entered her plea before 2nd District Judge Ronald O. Hyde. Sentencing was scheduled for Feb. 6. Jones could be sentenced to serve from one to 15 years in prison.Jones is one of seven members of the alleged polygamist group in Ogden known as "Sisters" who have been charged with sexually abusing several children within the group.

After police raided the homes in a North Ogden neighborhood in August, the six women and the alleged leader, Arvin Shreeve, 61, were charged with numerous counts of sexually abusing the children.

Shreeve has been the only defendant sentenced so far. The other cases are pending in court. Shreeve was ordered to serve a sentence of from 20 years to life in prison last month after he entered guilty pleas to four felony charges.
