Nesiba on Leave of Absence from the South Dakota Senate Democratic Caucus Following Alleged Sex Crime Arrest

Nesiba on Leave of Absence from the South Dakota Senate Democratic Caucus 

A 51-year-old woman allegedly told police in September that Nesiba made repeated, unwanted sexual advances and refused to leave her home. She alleged that he was naked as he repeatedly tried to undress her and he stopped only because she said she needed to go to work.

The South Dakota Democratic Party issued the following statement today on behalf of the members of the South Dakota Senate Democratic Caucus in response to the recent allegations against Senator-Elect Reynold Nesiba:

” Effective immediately, Dr Nesbia will be on leave of absence from the Senate Democratic Caucus pending the outcome of these charges. While our legal system determines the guilt or innocence, having such serious allegations pending against him will greatly impede his ability to  be an effective legislator and distract from the important work of the Caucus in creating a more transparent state government.” “During this leave of absence, Dr. Nesiba’s will not be allowed to attend any Caucus meetings before or during the Legislative Session. At the conclusion of Dr. Nesiba’s legal proceedings we will re-evaluate his role within our Caucus.”
