FRANKFORT, KY (Thu 14 Sep 2017) - Attorney General Andy Beshear today announced former Campbell County District Judge Timothy Nolan has been indicted by a Campbell County grand jury on eight additional felony counts.


Following the latest grand jury indictment, Nolan, 70, of California, Ky., has been indicted on 28 felony counts and 2 misdemeanor counts.

Today's charges include: two counts of human trafficking, Class C felonies; one count attempted human trafficking with a minor, a Class C felony; one count of sodomy in the third degree, a Class D felony; two counts of unlawful transaction with a minor under 16 controlled substance, Class B felonies; one count unlawful transaction with a minor under 18 controlled substance, a Class C felony; and one count rape of a female over the age of 12 years old, a Class B felony.

Nolan was originally charged in a criminal complaint by the Campbell County Police Department for crimes that occurred between 2010 and May 2017. That complaint alleged that Nolan committed human trafficking with a minor by subjecting a child under the age of 18 to engage in commercial sexual activity.

On May 4, Nolan was indicted by a Campbell County grand jury on - one count of human trafficking with a person under age 18, a Class B felony; one count of first degree rape, a Class B felony; five counts of human trafficking with adults, a Class C felonies; one count of second degree unlawful transaction with a minor, a Class D felony; one count of tampering with a witness, a Class D felony; one count of third degree unlawful transaction with a minor, a Class A misdemeanor; and one count of prostitution, a Class B misdemeanor.

On June 6, Nolan was arrested and charged with six additional felony counts of human trafficking in Campbell District Court. The charges included one count of human trafficking with a person under age 18, a Class B felony; and five counts of human trafficking with an adult, a Class C felonies.

On June 22, Nolan was charged with two counts of human trafficking with a person under the age of 18, a Class B felonies; two counts of human trafficking with an adult, a Class C felonies; and one count of unlawful transaction with a minor, a Class C felony.

Today's indictment brings the total count of alleged victims for which Nolan is charged to 22, including eight juveniles under the age of 18 and 14 adults.

Beshear's Special Prosecution Division is handling the case. The division is responsible for assisting local prosecutors in complex or sensitive cases, as well as handling cases in which local prosecutors recuse themselves. A core mission of Beshear's is to bring justice to victims of rape, sexual assault and human trafficking.

Anyone with information that could help police in this case should contact the Campbell County Police Department.

Nolan remains in custody. The next hearing is scheduled for Oct. 27, and Nolan's trial has been set for Feb. 27, 2018.
