Polygamist says he gave $30M from fraud to his Utah group

SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah polygamist says he gave nearly $30 million from a biodiesel fraud scheme to the polygamous group to which he belongs. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Jacob Kingston said Wednesday in court that the money went to a Utah-based polygamous group called the Davis County Cooperative Society, also known as the Kingston Group or The Order. He has previously said in the trial that the group aims to practice communal living with members sharing some of their earnings. He is testifying for the prosecution against a California businessman who prosecutors say helped Kingston carry-out the nearly $500 million fraud scheme.
