Two leaders of religious sect plead not guilty
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Two leaders of a New Mexico paramilitary religious sect have pleaded not guilty to charges connected to a child abuse investigation.
Deborah Green and Peter Green entered pleas Monday in Cibola County District Court. Co-leader Deborah Green and high-ranking leader Peter Green of the Aggressive Christianity Missions Training are being held on US$500,000 cash surety bond in connection with child sexual abuse charges stemming from a raid last month on their compound. The secluded compound is in the high desert of western New Mexico.
