Menomonie police say they have the man who skipped his jury trial this week in custody.

23-year-old Jesse D. Nelson was supposed to go on trial Tuesday to face at least five child sex charges.

But, when everyone gathered for the trial at the Dunn County Courthouse Nelson wasn’t there.

Nelson is accused of having sexual contact with a child under 16.

Police are thanking the people who gave them information about his location so he could be arrested.
