HAMILTON (AP) — One of two Hamilton men charged in a phony investment scheme surrendered to Ravalli County officials after learning there was a warrant for his arrest.
District Judge James Haynes of Hamilton issued warrants Tuesday for Harris Himes and James "Jeb" Bryant after state attorneys filed charges against the pastors in a phony investment scheme they say bilked a man of $150,000 in 2008.
Sheriff Chris Hoffman tells the Ravalli Republic (http://bit.ly/qN7GO4 ) that Himes turned himself in Wednesday morning.
Himes frequently testifies at the Legislature against gay rights and in favor of anti-abortion legislation.
Himes told KGVO-AM in Missoula Thursday that he is 'without sin or guilt with regard to this unnamed person' and that he believes gay and pro-abortion activists are behind the charges.
