Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 08:42

FILE - In this Monday, Oct. 10, 2011 file photo, Sam Mullet stands in front of his Bergholz, Ohio, home. An appeals court on Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014 overturned the hate-crime convictions of 16 Amish in beard- and hair-cutting attacks on fellow members of their faith in Ohio. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati sided with arguments brought by attorneys for the Amish, who were convicted two years ago in five attacks in Ohio Amish communities in 2011. The attacks were in apparent retaliation against Amish who had defied or denounced the authoritarian style of leader Mullet. (AP Photo/Amy Sancetta, File)CINCINNATI (AP) — Personal conflict, not religion, was the driving motive behind beard- and hair-cutting attacks targeting Amish, an appeals court panel ruled Wednesday in overturning the hate-crime convictions of 16 men and women.
