CLYDE, Texas—The founder of the House of Yahweh religious sect remained jailed Wednesday on four counts of bigamy, officials said.
Yisrayl Hawkins was being held at the Taylor County Jail, with bail set at $10 million.
[…] Hawkins, who founded the sect in 1980 after leaving the Abilene Police Department, was arrested in Callahan County on Tuesday afternoon.
It was unclear if Hawkins had an attorney. A message could not be left at the House of Yaweh’s office in Abilene on Wednesday morning.
Arrested two days before the world was supposed to end. You have to wonder if he saw this coming and made his prediction as a desperate form of wishful thinking.
