Somethings Amiss For The Amish

An Amish elder, the appropriately named Samuel Mullet, has been jailed for 15 years over a series of beard and hair cutting attacks on fellow Amish in eastern Ohio. His attorney had asked for a sentence of two years or less, while the government had sought a life sentence for him.
15 years and the Government were seeking a life sentence for cutting someones hair??? 
Either there is more to this story than first seems or someone in the Ohio justice system needs to have the word  'Appeal' shouted at him very loud by a long bearded man in dungarees, a straw hat and probably holding a pair of scissors.

Since his last name is Mullet, it might have been more fitting if he gave mullet hairdos to his victims, rather than focusing on their beards. Are there mullets in your locale?

We do have mullets here Annie which made me smile when i saw his name in a story regarding hair cutting. Very shocked at the sentence and that they wanted to give him life though.

Giving him 'life'. That'd be a shock for an Amish.

Ouch, sorry.
