A federal judge is weighing the government's request to require a suspect in beard- and hair-cutting attacks against fellow Amish in Ohio to hire a private attorney.

Federal prosecutors said in a court filing last week that Sam Mullet Sr. recently received more than $2 million from gas and oil leases on his property.

Prosecutors say Mullet was able to obtain a public defender by being less than forthcoming about his financial situation.

Prosecutors also say Mullet should not be released on bond because of the possibility he could hole up on his 800-acre property in eastern Ohio and try to avoid attending his trial.

Mullet's attorney argues that the $2 million is enough to ensure a sizable cash bond for his client to be freed.
