Women Say SF Driving Instructor Harassed, Groped Them As Teens

A popular driving instructor harassed and groped several underage San Francisco schoolgirls over a number of years, making sexual comments, forcing kisses on many, and in some cases taking them to secluded places before touching them inappropriately, according to 10 women who shared their allegations with The Chronicle.

Nelson Graves, the 61-year-old owner of Native Nellie’s Driving School, touched or rubbed their thighs as they drove, the women said. He commented repeatedly on their physical appearance and described the sexual activities of other teens, they said. Some said he nuzzled, licked and kissed their necks and ears.
