Nuwaubian cult members try to spring jailed leader with fake documents

Dwight Malachi York Followers of convicted child molester and sect leader Dwight “Malachi” York are bombarding officials at a federal maximum security lock-up with fake documents that seek to free him from a 135-year prison term.

The documents, some stamped by Athens-Clarke notaries, claim York has been falsely imprisoned since 2004 and should be released because he is an African diplomat, officials said.

Five years after Nuwaubian leader jailed his sect carries on

Dwight Malichi York Nuwaubian leader Dwight “Malachi” York continues to inspire followers in Athens and throughout the country, five years after a federal judge sentenced him to life in prison as a convicted child molester, tax evader and racketeer.

Although their leader is locked up thousands of miles away in Colorado, members of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors still gather in his name, and apparently just recently abandoned Athens for a meeting hall outside of Atlanta.

Writer: cult leader duped politicians

Dwight Malachi York was a false prophet, a psychotic thug, a con man extraordinaire and a sexual predator who headquartered his religious cult in rural Georgia, then used his position as a religious leader to deflect scrutiny from his criminal activities, a newly published book asserts.

Nuwaubians Protest in Macon

On Thursday, members of the religious group, the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors held a demonstration at Macon City Hall. On their agenda, two issues: to protest their leader, Malachi York’s imprisonment, and the firing of four of their members from the Clark County Jail in Athens.
