Convicted Nuwaubian leader asks court to dismiss his 135-year prison sentence

United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors founder Malachi York has filed a motion asking a federal judge to vacate his 135-year prison sentence due to prosecutorial misconduct allegedly connected to his January 2004 child molestation trial.

In the motion, filed on July 7, York alleges FBI agents threatened and coerced witnesses to testify against him and commit perjury. He also alleges prosecutors used allegations of pornographic tapes of York having sex with minors without any tangible proof of the tapes’ existence to taint the jury.
[...]

The motion includes affidavits of several of York’s alleged victims in which the victims now say York never molested them, but they say they were threatened by FBI agents to make false statements.
[...]

In addition to requesting that his sentence be vacated, York also has requested a hearing based on the witnesses recanting their testimony.
