Federal Bureau of Investigation arrests compound residents on gun charges following earlier release

The five defendants, found at a makeshift settlement in Amalia, New Mexico, were charged in a complaint filed earlier Friday in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico.

"The criminal complaint charges the other four defendants with aiding and abetting Leveille in committing the offense, and with conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense, " the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

Prosecutors also said that the remains found at the site were those of Abdul-Ghani and that the other children said the boy had died during a "religious ritual. meant to cast out demonic spirits", during which Siraj Wahhaj had put his hand to his son's forehead, and recited verses from the Koran. Morton, Subhannah Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj were subsequently released from jail.

"Our options are to re-file the charges or take the case to the grand jury", District Attorney Donald Gallegos told Reuters in a statement.

If convicted, each of the five could face up to 10 years in prison on the gun charge and five years on the conspiracy charge (though it's possible those could be concurrent).

So if avocados are already a budget line-item for you - or you'd like them to be - this could be the ideal side hustle. Participants will be given a free MRI and health screening and asked to attend a monthly meeting with a dietician.

Fox News reports that the five suspects, who made national headlines after 11 children were found starving at their compound, were arrested by the FBI for "violating federal firearms and conspiracy laws". She received no more visas, the complaint says. State prosecutors had alleged that Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Leveille intentionally deprived Abdul-Ghani of his medication and instead would perform a prayer ritual over him to cast out the demons they believed were making him sick. The complaint alleges that the firearms were transported from Georgia and/or Alabama to New Mexico in Leveille's vehicle.

In filings in federal court on Friday, an FBI agent reiterated accusations drawn from accounts by children at the compound that Leveille expected Abdul-ghani to be resurrected as Jesus and provide instruction to "get rid of" corrupt institutions that involve teachers, law enforcement and banks.

Several guns, ammunition and a bulletproof vest were found at the compound.

Three of the suspects were released that day, while the remaining two were charged with child neglect leading to the death of a child.

"Had the cases gone to preliminary hearing within the 10 days as required, it would be almost impossible to get all the witnesses, documents, exhibits, statements, etc., that would be required to have the court make a finding of probable cause", a Taos DA's Office press release said.
