Amish man Sam Mullet Sr. was sentenced in February to 15 years in prison, and his co-defendants, all members of his extended family, got sentences of one year to seven years for attacks in Ohio Amish communities in 2011 in apparent retaliation against Amish who had defied or denounced Mullet's authoritarian style.
