Hispanic activist Tony Yapias has been a vocal opponent of Donald Trump, as evidenced by this story from June:
Yapias, the director of Proyecto Latino de Utah, said Trump’s rhetoric is contributing to hatred against Latinos, so the advocate organized the rally against the front-runner Friday night. Yapias said the rally — attended by about 150 people, mostly of Hispanic descent — was about showing Trump that Latinos in Utah will not put up with his hate speech.
Tony’s brother James Yapias called for Trump to apologize to “all of our children” for referring to Mexicans as rapists and criminals during the campaign.
Yapias has since been arrested and charged with a crime:

From Fox 13:
Well-known Hispanic activist Tony Yapias was charged with rape after he allegedly assaulted a woman who ended their four-year relationship a few months ago.
Yapias, 50, known as Adolfo Tony Yapias-Delgado, was formally charged in the 3rd District Monday with rape, a first-degree felony and evidence tampering, a class A misdemeanor.
Yapias is the director of Proyecto Latino de Utah.
The Davis County Attorney’s Office is handling the case.
Irony was not hard to spot in this one:

@20committee Oh irony. And to answer as to "how this story helps", well, something about glass houses and stones…
