Attorneys have filed a civil lawsuit against the quasi-religious sect leader of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors on behalf on one of his alleged underage victims who claims he sexually molested her.
The suit, filed last year in the U.S. District Court in Athens, seeks $1 billion from confessed child molester Malachi York.
I dont know if I have the words to describe the revulsion I feel at the conduct of Mr. York toward our client, attorney Irwin W. Stolz Jr. told the Athens Banner-Herald in its Thursday editions.
The suit alleges that a female member of the Nuwaubian sect recruited the victim to be apart of the groups inner circle. York then showed the victims a pornographic video and later had sex with her. The alleged actions took place from the time the girl was 11 years old until she was 17.
Stolz said a judge could triple the award damages if a jury rules in favor of his client because he said Yorks actions fall under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
York, 58, pleaded guilty in January to taking children across state lines for the purpose of having sex with them and to evading federal financial reporting requirements.
His attorney, Manny Arora, declined to comment on the civil suit pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings.
