Nuwaubian leader's wife freed on bail
The Augusta Chronicle/December 4, 2002
Eatonton -- One of the four women facing charges of child
molestation along with Nuwaubian leader Malachi York was released
from jail Tuesday after making bail.
An Alpharetta man put up a $75,000 cash bond for Kathy Johnson,
the woman described by Mr. York's followers as his "main wife."
Mr. York remains in custody without bail. He is the leader of
the quasi-religious sect that moved from Brooklyn, N.Y., to Putnam
County in 1993.
Mr. York and Ms. Johnson were arrested in May and face charges
of sexually abusing children in a 208-count state indictment and a
four-count federal indictment.
