Gene Simco arraigned in Millbrook, New York

On August 21, Phil Migliarese posted on JiujitsuShare.com that Gene Simco, a famous Brazilian Jiujitsu Black Belt had been arrested in New York for:

1) Endangering the welfare of a CHILD.
2) SEXUAL ABUSE in the 3rd degree involving a MINOR.

More then a month later, after dozens of phone calls made and three trips to the Millbrook Village Court in New York we can confirm that this arrest took place, and that he was charged with these crimes. *

As previously mentioned, I do not know if Gene is guilty. It's up to the court system to answer this question, and Gene is presumed innocent unless he is convicted. I can say however, that since his court date was moved two times, someone did not want us present to witness what went on, and secondly if not for the attention this case received on the internet, neither the Prosecution, nor Simco, nor the Poughkeepsie Journal, would have publicly acknowledged the existence of this case.

We will continue to follow this case and bring you periodic updates. Will this case be dismissed because the alleged crime occurred outside applicable statute of limitations? Tune in at the end of October to find out.
