All but one of the 439 children who were taken away from a polygamist ranch in Texas have returned to their families.
It became one of the largest custody cases in U.S. history.
Texas officials had come looking for an abused teenage girl named
"Sarah" who didn't exist. It turned out calls made to a domestic abuse hot line were probably faked.
Willie Jessop, spokesman for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, says about two-thirds of the children are back at the YFZ Ranch.
It was a year ago that the outside world got its first glimpse of women in pioneer-style dresses and men who married multiple times.
But life at the YFZ Ranch has not returned to normal. The sect's prophet, Warren Jeffs, was convicted in Utah as an accomplice to rape. He's awaiting trial in Arizona and has been indicted in Texas.
