Angoon man indicted on child sex abuse charges

    Sitka, Alaska (KINY) - A Sitka grand jury indicted a man this week on sex abuse charges after an investigation by Alaska State Troopers.

    George Willie Nelson III was indicted Thursday on charges of Sexual Abuse of a Minor 1 and Sexual Abuse of a Minor 2.

    The investigation began after Alaska State Trooper dispatch personnel received a report that Nelson had taken a 6-year-old child whom he is not related to into a wooded trail area in Angoon.

    The Sitka court subsequently issued an arrest warrant for Nelson on the charges and set his bail at $100,000.

    On Friday, Troopers and Juneau Police Department personnel actively searched for Nelson. At about 4 p.m. Nelson was located on Mendenhall Boulevard.

    He was arrested and transported to the Lemon Creek Correctional Center where he was remanded.
