Helaman 5:1–3

And it came to pass that in this same year, behold, Nephi delivered up the judgment–seat to a man whose name was Cezoram. for as their laws and their governments were established by the voice of the people, and they who chose evil were more numerous than they who chose good, therefore they were ripening for destruction, for the laws had become corrupted. Yea, and this was not all; they were a stiffnecked people, insomuch that they could not be governed by the law nor justice, save it were to their destruction.
