BRUNSWICK, Ga. – The leader of a quasi-religious sect was convicted Friday of molesting boys and girls at the group’s ancient Egyptian-style compound.

Malachi York, 58, could face up to 80 years in prison at sentencing.

During the trial, two dozen boys and girls at the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors said York molested them from 1998 through 2002, when federal agents raided the compound.

The government charged that York recruited older girls to groom younger girls for sex with him, and that he used the cult for his own financial gain.

Members of the group were not paid for their work – instead, York managed the money and decided whom to reward and punish, prosecutors said.

He was found guilty on 10 counts of child molestation and racketeering. He was acquitted of transporting minors across state lines for unlawful sexual activity.
