Ex-Campbell County Judge Timothy Nolan to serve 20 years, pay $100K fine after plea
Former Judge Tim Nolan on Friday agreed to spend 20 years in prison for human trafficking.
He used drugs, threats of arrest and threats of eviction to force women and girls under the age of 18 into sex acts, according to the charges read in court by Judge Kathleen Lape.
Nolan pleaded guilty to 21 counts dating back to 2004. In addition to human trafficking and attempted human trafficking, the charges included giving drugs and alcohol to minors.
Under the plea agreement, Nolan will serve 20 years in prison and pay a $100,000 fine. He would be eligible for parole in four years, his attorney said. The judge will sentence him on March 29.
The case has shocked the region. Nolan served as a district judge in the late 1970s and early 1980s and had become a well-known political figure. He campaigned locally for President Donald Trump, was vocal on many conservative/tea party issues, and was elected to the Campbell County School Board in 2016.
Let’s Be Real About Trump’s First Year in Regulation | The Regulatory Review
Ask nearly anyone to name President Donald J. Trump’s most significant domestic policy accomplishments. They will likely cite tax legislation and regulatory reform. The first of these was indeed a big policy, one that shifts tax brackets, changes and cuts deductions, and adds an estimated $1.5 trillion to the national deficit over the next ten years. The second of these is, well, not so much.
