Parley P. Pratt’s Prison Time

Parley P. Pratt
Those responsible for placing Parley in prison confided that the real reason they threw him in prison had nothing to do with the charge on indebtedness, but actually for what?
a.      To keep him from joining the Mormon church
b.      For the attempted murder of Gov. Boggs of Missouri
c.       For aiding in the escape of Joseph Smith
d.      For aiding in the escape of Porter Rockwell 
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   10
Between 1883 and 1889, at least ten women were sent to the Utah prison by the district courts for refusing to answer questions about their husbands related to polygamy.
