Leader of Amish sect's behavior to be issue at trial

Prosecutors in connection with an alleged beard-cutting incident among Amish people will be allowed to argue to the jury that one of the defendants had undue influence over his community after the judge in the case rejected the defendant's motion on May 29. Defense attorneys had argued that the prosecutors' only purpose in painting the defendant as the unquestioned leader of the community was to prejudice the jury against him.

More Amish charged in federal hair-cutting case

Additional defendants have been added to a bizarre case involving a renegade sect of Amish worshippers who cut the beards and hair of more mainstream Amish. The news of more federal indictments was released on March 30, bringing the number of defendants in the case to 16. Federal officials say that the new defendant group consists of four women who are married to nephews of the outlaw sect's leader.
