The leader of sadistic cult ‘The Knights of the Crystal Blade’ who admitted sodomy on a child was served a second life sentence for sex crimes against children. Pedophile Samuel Shaffer, of Utah, admitted the vile sex crimes on Wednesday in Sanpete County. He was sentenced to 15 years behind bars which will run concurrently with his previous life term for first-degree felony rape of a child and one second-degree felony count of child abuse. Shaffer chilling told the court he had hoped to have a family and grow with the 8-year-old victim, who he considered being his ‘bride’.
“I sincerely believed that child marriage was a correct principle from God. And I’ve seen the consequences of what’s happened, and I know that I shouldn’t have done it now,” Shaffer told a judge. “But I sincerely believed that the practice was correct at the time.”
