Amish man serving 15 years for beard cutting

CLEVELAND -- An Amish man will serve 15 years behind bars for beard cutting attacks.

Sam Mullet Sr was sentenced by a federal judge in Cleveland who said the victims of the beard cutting attacks were terrorized, traumatized, and ambushed.

"A lot of people in the community think he should get a life sentence because he scared a lot of people. Scared my family. I'm just here to make sure, to find out, what he gets and take the news back to the community."

Mullet, the leader of the group, was sentenced to 15 years, while 4 of his followers were sentenced to 7 years in prison. The rest will serve 1 to 5 years.
