Chris Simcox, who founded a border-watch group known as the Minutemen to look for illegal immigrants coming into Arizona from Mexico, has been arrested in Phoenix on suspicion of having sexual contact with three girls under the age of 10, police said.
The leader of an anti-illegal-immigrant group was convicted Monday in an Arizona home invasion that left a 9-year-old girl and her father dead in what prosecutors called an attempt to steal drug money to fund border operations.
An Arizona court has ruled that an order of protection against Minuteman co-founder Chris Simcox sought by his estranged wife as part of a messy divorce case be continued "in full force," saying evidence shows that he committed an act of violence.
Minuteman co-founder Chris Simcox, the focus of allegations in an Arizona divorce case that says he threatened to kill his wife, their three children and any police who came to protect them, says he will defend himself in court and "not in the court of public opinion."
Chris Simcox went from lone sentry on the Arizona border to the leader of thousands of armed civilian volunteers as part of the Minuteman movement to a frequent speaker before Congress to a U.S. senatorial candidate — all in five years. Now bounty hunters are looking for him.
Several former Minuteman leaders, angry over the organization's failure to account for hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of dollars in donations, have formed their own border-vigil operation.
In court documents, Mrs. Simcox said her husband threatened her with a gun he “repeatedly pointed at me, saying he was going to kill me and my kids and the police.” She said the ordeal lasted six hours, during which she locked herself and her children in a bedroom until Mr. Simcox passed out.
"We knew that Shawna Forde was not just an unsavory character but pretty unbalanced, as well," Mr. Simcox said.
