Judge Allows Ex-Minuteman Leader Chris Simcox to Represent Self, Trial Reset for March 16

A Maricopa County Superior Court Judge will allow former Minuteman leader Chris Simcox to represent himself during his upcoming trial on allegations that he molested two young girls, one his own daughter, in 2013.

During a pretrial hearing Monday morning in Phoenix, Judge Jose Padilla summarily granted Simcox's request, which had been filed February 12.

This offers the disturbing possibility that Simcox will be able to cross-examine his alleged victims, who were 6 and 5 at the time of the incidents.
