FILE - In this Oct. 10, 2011 file photo, Sam Mullet Sr. stands in the front yard of his home in Bergholz, Ohio. Sixteen members of a breakaway Amish community from eastern Ohio are scheduled to be resentenced in Cleveland after a federal appellate court overturned their hate crime convictions. The resentencing Monday, March, 2, 2015, is needed because the original sentences for the 16 didn’t distinguish between their hate crimes convictions and convictions on other charges related to the forced cutting of beards and hair of seven people. All were members of other Ohio Amish communities. Eight of the 16 already have served their sentences and can’t be returned to prison. (AP Photo/Amy Sancetta, File)CLEVELAND (AP) — Members of a breakaway Amish community found guilty of chopping off the beards and hair of others they disagreed with could be let out of prison or have their sentences reduced Monday if a judge throws out their remaining convictions.
