The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said on its offenders search list that Jeffs had been taken to a hospital in Galveston from a prison facility in Palestine, Texas. It was not clear when he was hospitalized, or for what reason.
Jeffs was previously taken to the hospital when, in 2011, he engaged in a lengthy hunger strike that required he be put into a medically-induced coma.
Jeffs, the president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, is serving a life sentence, plus 20 years, for raping a 15-year-old and 12-year-old girl -- charges of which he was convicted in 2011.
He has also been tried for various counts of accomplice rape -- marrying underage girls to his older male followers -- in Arizona and Utah. Convictions in Utah were overturned by the state Supreme Court over incorrect jury instructions, and charges in Arizona were dismissed with prejudice.
