Nelson Receives Additional Charges From DA

The Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office filed two additional charges on 9/14 against Bruce Nelson, who has already pleaded not guilty to five charges of sexual assault. Nelson, 55, is a former staff member at Solutions Rehabilitation Center, where the alleged assaults occurred. The previous charges were for allegations in connection with a 22-year-old woman, while the new charges arose from allegations made in a civil lawsuit filed against the center by a 42-year-old woman.
