Seven people have filed federal lawsuits against Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills, alleging he did not act quickly enough to reports that their children were molested by Malachi York, leader of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors religious sect.
York was convicted in April of molestation charges and received a 135-year prison sentence.
Sills was served with the lawsuits on Wednesday and has not yet responded to them.
