The United States Department of Labor started investigating Lyel’s suspected child labor violation in 2012. According to a report by CNN, the FLDS Church forced children to harvest nuts at the Southern Utah Pecan Ranch.
Soon after, judge Sam ruled that both Lyle and his brother Nephi avoided going to court despite being officially required to do so to avoid answering questions from the Labor Department investigators.
On April 20, 2015, several FLDS Church members, including Lyle, were assessed fines for alleged child labor violations for $1.96 million!

Following Warren’s incarceration in 2006, Nephi often went to prison to pay a visit to his brother. Eight out of the ten times he visited his brother, he was accompanied by Lindsay Barlow, who worked as Nephi’s security.
While in Purgatory Jail, in Hurricane, Utah, Warren declared to his brother Nephi that he was not the true prophet and that he “was not called of God.” Nephi refused to believe the statement and reported it to his followers.
