CLEVELAND (AP) – Members of an Amish breakaway group in Ohio have been found guilty of hate crimes by carrying out beard- and hair-cutting attacks against fellow Amish in a dispute over religious differences.

The jury today also found their leader guilty of planning the attacks last fall in eastern Ohio. He and his family members were among 16 people who have been on trial in Cleveland. They all face possible prison terms of 10 years or more.
