cult' leader pleads guilty -- Sondra , the mother of Rod Ferrell,
who police say led the "vampire cult" pleaded guilty to trying to
entice a teen-age boy into sex as an initiation rite.

cult leader, Rod Ferrell, now 20, condemned for fatally beating
a Eustis couple, was reduced to life in prison by the state Supreme

would be cruel and unusual and therefore unconstitutional. Ferrell,
