Alleged Beard-Cutter Must Pay for His Attorney

We have previously posted on the Ohio Amish men alleged to have cut the beards and hair of other Amish here and here.

Samuel Mullet, Sr., the alleged ringleader, was previously ruled indigent.  However, he recently received over $2 million from oil and gas leases, and now must pay for his own defense.  Prosecutors have also asked that Mullet remain in jail until trial, scheduled to begin on August 27.
