Nearly two-thirds of the families living at a polygamist group’s ranch — targeted in a high-profile raid last spring — had children who were abused or neglected, Texas child welfare authorities conclude in a new report.

The Department of Family and Protective Services said that 12 girls, ages 12 to 15, were sexually abused “with the knowledge of their parents” after being “spiritually” married to older men within the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

“Seven of these girls have had one or more children,” the report added.
