Pa. man admits beating ‘Amish Mafia’ star


Published:

LANCASTER, Pa. – A central Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to beating a star of the TV series “Amish Mafia.”

Imir Williams admitted Thursday to assaulting and stalking girlfriend Esther Schmucker, who appears on the Discovery Channel show based in Lancaster County.

Authorities say Williams repeatedly punched Schmucker on Oct. 31 at her Strasburg home and broke her nose, cheekbone and several teeth.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports Williams had been jailed for the past seven weeks. He was released on bail Monday after serving a month more than the standard penalty for such charges.

Williams was placed on probation for three years and ordered to have no contact with Schmucker.

The 27-year-old victim says she’s disappointed Williams wasn’t charged with a harsher crime.

Williams is not on the program.
