Sexual Battery Arrest

July 7, 2017

On July 6, 2017 Levy County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Divisions (CID) investigators arrested Timothy John Nelson (8-9-82) of Williston for sexual battery, victim over 18 years old. 

Investigators responded to a call for assistance from an adult female victim. The victim told investigators she is familiar with Nelson and had invited him to her home for an evening get together. She said they spoke and had a few drinks while watching TV. She said she has no recollection of going to bed and believed Nelson could have put something in her drink. When she awoke the following morning, she “knew” she had been raped. 

Investigators located Nelson and conducted an interview. Nelson confirmed he had sexual relations with the victim while she was incapacitated. 

Nelson has been booked in to the Levy County Detention Facility and charged with sexual battery of a person over 18. His bond has been set at $100,000.00.
