Investigators determined that there is a wide-spread pattern and practice among the residents of the YFZ Ranch in which young minor female residents are conditioned to expect and accept sexual activity with adult men at the ranch upon being spiritually married to them.

Once the DFPS agency had the false report from "Sarah," it enlisted legions of law-enforcement personnel and carried out the April 3 military-style raid of the YFZ Ranch starting at 9:00 p.m., without a warrant or a court order.
In fact, court records indicate that the agency found no credible evidence of any abuse whatsoever in any home at the YFZ Ranch.
