David Nelson

David Nelson former prominent elder (he gave major parts on Circuit and District Conventions) in the Phoenix area is now out of jail and free to go door to door in the Phoenix area Madison Park congregation territory.  The interesting part is this recent update from a member of a nearby congregation.

 

David Nelson is BACK at Madison Park Congregation.  He NEVER wasdisfellowshiped but is on reproof! I am an active member of the congregation near Madison Park and cannot understand why this is happening.  Why wasn't David Nelson disfellowshipped?  Why is he allowed BACK in the Congregation with nothing but a slap on the wrist?  I am very disturbed by this!!"

 

We wish to alert the public in the Phoenix Arizona, Madison Park area to be on the look out for this man.  If he comes to your door and offers to study the Bible with your family, you could be inviting a pedophile into your home.  Nelson is required by his religion to call at your home or by his beliefs face execution by God.  He will also ask you for a donation to the Worldwide Work or Jehovah’s Witnesses.   This fund has been used to spend millions of dollars defending Jehovah’s Witness pedophiles around the world.  If you donate you assist in the legal defense of child molesters.

 

If you see Brother Nelson working in your neighborhood, call the police and notify them a sex offender is interacting with the public where children are involved.

Strip poker can be a fun party game when played by visually -- and age -- appropriate gamblers. It's a problem, however, when one of those playing is a preacher -- it's an even bigger problem when the only other player is a 14-year-old boy.

The former preacher at a Jehovah's Witness church in Phoenix was arrested last night for allegedly playing strip poker -- and doing a lot of other sick stuff -- with a 14-year-old boy more than 30 years ago.

David Nelson, the former leader of the Madison Park Congregation Church near 16th Street and Earll Drive in Phoenix, was arrested last night at his home for molesting a boy he met through the church in 1980.

We got our hands on the police report -- sick stuff.

According to the report, in September of 1980, when he was 33-years-old, Nelson had the 14-year-old victim -- described as "a close family friend" -- over to his house on at least two occasions to play cards. Nelson's rules are different than, say, Vegas' -- the loser in his game is required to pull out his junk and show it to the winner.

As the games progressed, the stakes got higher and the loser was required to touch the winner's penis with his hand.

According to the police report, both Nelson and the victim touched each other's wieners.

As the game progressed further, the stakes got even higher. By the end of the games, the loser had to suck the winner's penis, which happened, the report claims, on at least two occasions.

According to the report, the first time Nelson sucked the victim's penis, he hummed as he went to the bathroom to wash the victim's semen out of his mouth. On the second occasion, he just spit it into a towel.

If you just threw up in your mouth a little bit, we don't blame you.

Nelson was only caught because during a recent phone call with the victim, he admitted to the blowjobs and to playing strip poker with the boy. The conversation was recorded and given to police.

Nelson told police he wanted to apologize to the victim and that everything that happened was his fault (no shit, dude).

Nelson's been charged with two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of molestation of a child, and two counts of public sexual indecency.

Former Jehovah's Witness Preacher Convicted of Playing Strip Poker With 14-Year-Old Boy Only Gets Six Months in Jail

David Clark Nelson got a pretty sweet deal after pleading guilty to charges he had oral sex with a 14-year-old boy.

?A former Jehovah's Witness preacher who pleaded guilty to charges that he repeatedly played strip poker and felated a 14-year-old member of his congregation more than 30 years ago got a tap on the wrist this morning when he was sentenced by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Karen O'Connor -- the guy only got six months in jail.

Seems pretty light when you look at similar cases, namely Susan Brock's. She's serving a 13-year prison sentence for sexually abusing a Chandler teen.

It seems even more absurd when you consider the grotesque details of David Clark Nelson's crimes.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, in September 1980, when he was 33-years-old, Nelson had the 14-year-old victim -- described as "a close family friend" -- over to his house on at least two occasions to play cards. Nelson's rules are different than, say, Vegas' -- the loser in his game is required to pull out his penis and show it to the winner.

As the games progressed, the stakes got higher, and the loser was required to touch the winner's penis with his hand.

According to the police report, both Nelson and the victim touched each other's penises.

As the game progressed, the stakes got even higher. By the end of the games, the loser had to suck the winner's penis, which happened, the report claims, on at least two occasions.

According to the report, the first time Nelson sucked the victim's penis, he hummed as he went to the bathroom to wash the victim's semen out of his mouth. On the second occasion, he just spit it into a towel.

Nelson was only caught because, during a recent phone call with the victim, he admitted to the blowjobs and to playing strip poker with the boy. The conversation was recorded and given to police.

Nelson told police he wanted to apologize to the victim and that everything that happened was his fault.

Per our request, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office is looking into why the sentence was so light. It could be because the date of the offense was at a time when sentencing guidelines for these types of crimes were not yet in place, or it could have been included in his plea deal when he pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual conduct with a minor. We'll let you know when they get back to us.

Maricopa County Attorney's Office Explains Light Sentence for Jehovah's Witness Elder Convicted of Sex Crimes

By James King Thu., May 12 2011 at 2:11 PM

David Clark Nelson, a former Jehovah's Witness elder, pleaded guilty to charges that he played strip poker and had oral sex with a teenage boy in 1980. He was sentenced this morning to six months in county jail and three years' probation. If that seems like a light sentence, that's because it is. However, there are some details about the case that caused Nelson's slap on the wrist.

Jerry Cobb, spokesman for the Maricopa County Attorneys Office, tells New Times that the initial charges against Nelson had to be changed when detectives were unable to confirm the age of the boy at the time of the abuse.

"When the victim first came forward, 30 years after [the abuse], the detective determined he [had been]14," Cobb says.

However, in a secondary interview, the victim wasn't sure if he was 14 or 15 at the time of the abuse, which makes a huge difference in the eyes of the law (just ask Susan Brock, who is currently serving a 13-year prison sentence for a sexual relationship she had with a teenager, beginning when the boy was 14).

Sexual abuse of a child 14 or younger is a Class 2 felony, with much harsher penalties than abuse of a child who is 15 or older.

Another problem with the case, Cobb points out, is that Nelson had to be sentenced under 1981 sentencing guidelines, which were less severe than today's.

Regardless, David Nelson got off light.
