A self-help speaker is on trial right now for the death of 3 people in 2009. This self-help speaker led a spiritual retreat outside of Sedona, Arizona. He is being accused of 3 separate counts of manslaughter for the 3 people who died on the retreat from participating in a sweat lodge. If convicted of all 3 counts, he can receive up to 10 years in jail per count. CNN has an interesting article and video on the subject. Here is what Hayley (one of the people testifying) had to say.
