Neal Hendrix Investigated For Sexual Assault

by The Editors on October 24, 2018

USA Skateboarding’s Neal Hendrix has been suspended from the organization while being investigated for “allegations of improper sexual contact” after being accused by skateboarder Julz Lynn (aka Julie Lynn Kindstrand Nelson) in a six page letter to the Costa Mesa, California Police Department, according to a story in the Washington Post. The contact allegedly occurred in 2007.

In the letter, which was also provided to ESPN’s Alyssa Roenigk, Kindstrand Nelson alleged that, when she was between the ages of 14 and 15 and Hendrix was in his early 30s, she performed sex acts on him at his request. Kindstrand Nelson also alleged in the letter that Hendrix masturbated in front of her, photographed and took videos of her while she was naked and showed her pornography involving underage girls. Hendrix, who was her mentor, brought her to his apartment for what he called “sex lessons” after meeting her at a California skatepark in 2006, she wrote in the letter.

In an email to the Washington Post, quoted by ESPN, Hendrix said “the claims are 100% false.” So far no charges have been filed.
