Jonathan Nelson is on his way to a jail in Spur.
U-S Marshals escorted him from Abilene to Lubbock late Wednesday afternoon. They transferred him to Spur just before 6:00 p.m. Wednesday. Nelson is the man who pleaded guilty to stealing $77 million from his former employer Patterson UTI. Nelson was arrested in Abilene last week for a parole violation. He had apparently moved from Littlefield to Aspermont. Nelson will most likely remain behind bars until his sentencing. He faces up to thirty years in prison.
