Ellie Nesler

Ellie Nesler the famous courtroom vigilante killer has died of Breast Cancer in Sacramento, California at the age of 56. ....... she sparked a national debate about vigilantism in 1993 when she shot and killed Daniel Mark Driver (the 35-year-old Christian camp employee who in summer 1988 allegedly sodomized the boys). She shot him five times in the head in a Tuolumne County courtroom during a break in his preliminary hearing for allegedly molesting four young boys - one of which was her own six year old son (Willie) whilst at the Christian camp. Ellie Nesler was originally charged with murder but was actually convicted of "voluntary manslaughter" although she only served three years of a 10-year sentence before she was released because of jury misconduct. ....... "Ellie Nesler was praised by some as a protective mother driven to act by the prospect of having her traumatized son testify against Driver in open court. Others criticized her for brushing aside the legal system" (Los Angeles Times)........
