Dwight “Malachi” York’s was arrested in 2002 and convicted in 2004 of child molestation in what was the largest prosecution of child molestation by a single individual in U.S. history. York was the leader of a quasi-religious cult, United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, and moved his 100 or so followers from Brooklyn, New York, to a rural property in Putnam County, Georgia, in 1993, where he separated children from parents to be home-schooled. Girls as young as 8 were instructed that sex with York was normal activity. York abused dozens of girls and is now serving a 135-year prison sentence.
