Dating a woman in her 30s
Beverly Young Nelson says Roy Moore, who is running for a US Senate seat in Alabama, sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old and he was in his 30s.
Nelson, 56, said at a press conference with her attorney on Monday that she got to know Moore in the late 1970s, when she was a waitress at the Old Hickory House restaurant in Gadsden, Alabama, and he was the deputy district attorney of Etowah County.
Nelson said Moore was a regular at the restaurant who often complimented her looks and would sometimes touch her long hair as she walked past his seat at the counter.
One day, Nelson said, Moore offered her a ride home after her shift ended at 10 p.m.
Nelson, who accepted the offer because her boyfriend was late to pick her up, said Moore drove her around to a dark corner of the parking lot behind the restaurant.
"Instead of driving to the street, he stopped the car, and he parked his car in between the dumpster and the back of the restaurant, where there were no lines," Nelson said. I was alarmed, and I immediately asked him what he was doing. Moore reached over and began groping me, him putting his hands on my breasts," Nelson continued.
