Angoon man arrested and charged with sexual abuse of a minor, Troopers say
An Angoon man is facing multiple charges of sexual abuse of a minor.
Alaska State Troopers say they received a report on May 20 that 53-year-old George Willie Nelson III brought a 6-year-old child, who is not related to him, to a wooded trail area in Angoon.
Juneau-based troopers responded and investigated the original report the same day.
On June 6, a Sitka grand jury indicted Nelson on first and second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. The Sitka court issued an arrest warrant for Nelson and set his bail to $100,000.
Juneau Police Department and troopers located Nelson on Mendenhall Boulevard on Friday afternoon. Nelson was arrested and transported to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
