Aug 28, 2017

GRANTS, N.M. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted four members of a New Mexico paramilitary religious sect in connection with a child abuse and child sexual abuse investigation. The Cibola County grand jury voted late Friday to indict the four members of the Aggressive Christianity Missions Training Corps after a magistrate judge refused to lower bonds. Sect co-leader Deborah Green is facing charges of failure to report a birth, child abuse and sexual penetration of a minor. Peter Green faces 100 counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child on suspicion of raping a girl from the time she was 7. Two others face failure to report a birth charges. The group, founded in California, says the allegations are totally false.
