he gets 15 years.
CLEVELAND - An Ohio Amish sect leader was sentenced on Friday to 15 years in federal prison for his leadership role in beard- and hair-cutting attacks on members of other Amish communities in 2011.
Prosecutors had recommended a life sentence for Samuel Mullet Sr., 67, who was convicted of a hate crime in September for orchestrating attacks carried out on six Amish men and two women, though he was not present for any of them.
edit to add: much more at the link.

4. I did know that
I figured that would just amount to more years than would normally be given for such a crime. But I don't really know how hate crimes charges work.
Life sounds like a lot to me though. In any case that doesn't matter because he didn't get it.
