    CA - David Davis, 45, stomped to death, Sonora, 25 July 2004

    http://www.nbc4.tv/news/3588356/detail.html

    Eleven years after courtroom spectator Ellie Nesler pulled a gun from her purse and killed the man accused of molesting her 11-year-old son, police are conducting a massive search for William Nesler, now 23, accused of beating a man to death."

    Story says she is back in prison for manufacturing meth, what a sad case all around.
    Just my opinion

    WHAT????? OHMYGOD!!!!! I can't believe it. And this guy whom he beat to death died at Modesto Hospital. Is that the same "Modesto" where Laci Peterson lived?

    Yes Jeana Modesto CA. I was looking for SP stories when I saw this. I don't believe violence is a solution but I could understand she wanted to kill the pervert. Obviously the alleged molestation, the killing, the prison time, all the angst stamped on her son's heart and psyche. Not excusing him if he did this.
    Just my opinion

    There is a really good article I read this morning. Link below. The mother is in prison AGAIN this time for manufacturing methamphamines. The kid has a mile-long record starting back from his childhood. I think this case would be a good one for examation. I mean, did the boys troubles start because of the molestation or was it because his mother spent three years in prison for murdering the guy who molested him? Did his mother turn out to be a drug manufacturer because of the time she spent in prison or would she have taken that path anyway???? So many questions.

    Here's the link:

    Imho, the mother had her own issues to begin with, which definitey affected her son, long before he was mollested. His mother ending up in prison, didn't help him, I'm sure.

    The mother, premeditated killing this man. Imho, to me, that speaks volumes, and goes to what her character was like before the mollestation.

    Violence is learned behavior, and is passed down from one generation to another.

    I think we all have feelings of anger when we hear that a child has been molested or hurt by an adult. It's natural to even think, "Hey, I'd love to get my hands on that guy, I'd show him what it feels like to be abused". They'd probably have to hold me back with chains if anyone ever touched my kid. However, I AM glad that we have laws to prevent people from actually going through with taking matters into their own hands. Because it is natural to want to do so, yet the consequences of actually following through on those impulses can have great negative consequences,too. It's normal to want some sort of "cruel and unusual punishment" for those who have hurt the ones we love, or hurt someone who is defenseless. But I honestly think that laws against cruel & unusual punishment serve a great purpose; so that, in preventing us from indulging in cruelty motivated by revenge, we don't start behaving in much the same way as the original perpetrators-- like monsters. In addition, the laws against such types of punishment protect you, and your loved ones. I'd hate to see someone I loved, with all sorts of circumstances making it look as though he or she had perpetrated some horrible crime against a child, sitting in jail, waiting for a fair trial, and everyone thinking "he did it", and then the other inmates and jail personnel just having a field day torturing him, and then when he goes to trial it turns out he was innocent after all. Look at those on death row, actually hundreds of people now I think, who have actually been PROVEN innocent through DNA. What if your loved one was in prison, maybe actually innocent, and some sadistic guard was torturing him because he thought he had the right since he didn't like the crime your loved one had supposedly committed? What if that person in prison was you? Even if guilty, the person in prison is being punished by being in prison, that's the punishment. I don't think prison should be a positive experience, or that inmates should be coddled in any way, shape or form. But to decide that additional punishment, meted out as the other inmates or guards see fit, is appropriate---well, I don't believe that. I heard alot of positive feedback for Ellie N. when she shot that guy---now it looks as though it also may have had some great negative consequences for her child. I know that other factors probably played a part, not just the shooting of the molester, but who knows how differently things would have turned out if the kid's mom had just stood by him in a steadfast manner instead of killing someone, involving herself and her son in such a high-profile and extremely stressful situation, and then going away to prison for a long period of time?

    Remembering Nellie (?)

    Does anyone remember a woman named Nellie...that shot the predator that molested her young son? It's been at least 10yrs ago, I think.

    The predator was on trial for molesting her son. He had a privious criminal record for molesting other children as well..

    Somehow Nellie got a gun into the courtroom and shot the predator dead. I think she got a 5yr prison sentence..but the last I heard she was release but now suffering breast cancer.

    Does anyone remember this case or what happened to Nellie? God help me...but I always admired her.

    Was that the one in Kentucky? I thought she got off?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Updates-sad news

    I googled her and got updates. They are not good news.

    Her name is Ellie Nesler. She is in jail now for meth related charges.

    Worse yet, her son, the one who was molested, is now accused of his own murder. He apparently beat a man to death. Here is his mugshot:

    And his story:

    Nesler trial set for May 11

    Willie Nesler will stand trial on a murder charge in Tuolumne County, a judge ruled yesterday.

    Nesler's lawyer had asked for the trial to be moved to a different county because of the notoriety of the Nesler name and pretrial publicity of last summer's killing.

    But Tuolumne County Superior Court Judge Eric DuTemple ruled that media coverage of Willie Nesler's case has not been so overwhelming that an impartial jury could not be found.

    "Most people in the state have heard of his mother, but the defendant has no particular standing in the community as far as I know," DuTemple said when he denied the motion.

    Nesler, 23, is accused of beating David Davis, 45, to death at Nesler's family property on Shaws Flat Road. The killing occurred less than an hour after Nesler was released from the Tuolumne County Jail after serving time for beating Davis earlier in the year.

    Nesler's mother, Ellie Nesler, made headlines around the world in 1993 for fatally shooting her son's alleged molester while he sat in a small Jamestown courtroom. She was then convicted in a high-profile two-part trial the next year of voluntary manslaughter and a made-for-TV movie was later produced about her case.

    I don't think that your sympathy was misplaced. It is a tragic story. I feel badly for her and what has become of her and her son.

    I was just talking about her this morning to my husband,couldn't remember her name.That's to bad that she is into drugs and her son is a criminal now.But I think I would have done the same thing as she did to the child molester.
