SAHUARITA - A man who fled the state after being convicted in 2009 of sexual conduct with his underage, quadriplegic stepson was located in British Columbia, Canada, and has been arrested.
According to Sahuarita Police, during July 2007, December 2007, and January 2008, George Ross Wilcox engaged in sexual conduct with his stepson, a minor under the age of 15, who was incapacitated due to a brain injury and is a quadriplegic.
