Michael L Humiston attorney in utah Is going after his clients for his playgamy group. with out telling them about it. marrying them under is church by him self... beware.. HE he has 35 women he want to bring in his group so far. He does what more then that. he prays on the weak, not any one who is strong to bring in his group. If he would have known how strong I was he would have never been with me. He abuses you mentally and physically. he destroys you until he thinks you have nothing left so you will fallow him. He is trying to destroy the LDS church because he don't think its the true church. He has wrote a book about it. He has read it to me and what he wrote Is wrong, not true at all.

All his girlfriends, they better get checked because his wife Joan Patton died from cancer that is caused by VD and michael is caring it to. These really needs to know what he is doing.
