Two felony counts of injury to a child filed against Star Middle School principal

 

 

We now know more about the recent arrest and charges of the Star Middle School principal, Tony Nelson.

Nelson is charged with two felony counts of injury to a child…he posted bail early Saturday morning.

The Idaho Press reports an indictment states the abuse happened on or between Jan of 2016 and January 2019, and alleges Nelson withheld food from two children causing them to become malnourished. He’s also accused of keeping a child isolated in a room and leaving bruising on the bottom and lower back of a child.

The relationship Nelson had with the children is not clear.

West Ada School District’s chief communication officer Eric Exline said Nelson was placed on paid administrative leave.

Nelson is scheduled to be arraigned May 28th.
