Chris Simcox Child Molestation Allegations: Daughter Listed as Victim
Simcox, once the face of the minuteman movement
Minuteman Chris Simcox could end up being Chris Simcox, 25-to-life man, if the allegations against him are true.
Simcox's new home is Maricopa County's Lower Buckeye Jail, where he is being held nonbondable on several charges related to child molestation, attempted child molestation and sexual conduct with minors.
Phoenix police say the three victims are all under 10 years of age. According to Arizona's statute regarding dangerous crimes against children, any adult convicted of sexual conduct with a minor who is under 12 years of age "may be sentenced to life imprisonment."
Otherwise, the sentence for one count could be 13 to 27 years. The law also calls for consecutive sentencing in four out of the five counts listed for Simcox on his court paperwork. Meaning they would run back-to-back.
Details of the allegations were released this morning in the Phoenix Police Department's probable cause statement.
During a forensic interview with detectives, one of the girls, victim number two, refers to Simcox as "dad," and is identified as one of Simcox's daughters.
Victim number two mentions that her "sister was in the shower with her" during the time of one of the alleged incidents.
Apparently, victims number one and number three are not related to Simcox.
The first victim states that Simcox touched her while they were both in the kitchen of his home. This, as his two daughters were outside playing. She also alleges that Simcox showed her pornographic movies on his computer.
