You might not have expected anyone in the Amish country to be involved in mafia-like activity, but the reality cast of Amish Mafia may have a few words to say about that. The reality series first premiered on the Discovery Channel back in 2012 and followed purported members of the titular "Amish Mafia" of Lancaster County in Pennsylvania. The show followed the mafia's daily lives as they attempted to keep the peace in their Amish community and protect it from outsiders.

The series' legitimacy was in question throughout its four-season run up until it ended in 2015. In fact, the existence of an Amish mafia has been widely refuted by scholars and law enforcement, and the show has been criticized for defaming the Amish people at large.

Nevertheless, folks are curious about what's become of the reality stars of Amish Mafia since the show ended. Here's what we know about the cast's current lives.

Levi King Stoltzfus aka Lebanon Levi

Lebanon Levi was the purported boss of the Lancaster Amish Aid syndicate and was often portrayed as the last line of defense against power struggles in their area. Since the series ended, he hasn't been active on any social media. However, he did publish a book in October 2015 in which he describes both his Amish lifestyle and his time on the show.
