With the Order’s ceremonies in hand, Frank and Editha Jackson, better known in this case as Theo and Laura Horos, set up a cult called the Theocratic Unity. After many get taken in by their con, they were eventually caught and arrested for fraud and statutory rape, as part of a “Golden Dawn initiation”.
In the course of the trial, the Golden Dawn ceremonies were read in open court. Once this happened, both the allegiant and rebel factions of the Order had little choice but to distance themselves from the Golden Dawn name.
The trial ends with Theo being sent to prison for fifteen years and Laura for seven.
