Former NKY judge faces human trafficking charges

Former Campbell County District Judge Timothy Nolan is accused of underage human trafficking.

Court documents claim Nolan intentionally subjected an underage person to commercial sexual activity in August 2016. That same month, Nolan engaged in sexual activity with a minor, documents state.

Nolan is also accused of giving alcohol to a minor.

His alleged crimes were committed in Campbell County, but his case has been moved to Boone County court.

He served as a district judge in the 1970s and 1980s.

Nolan was elected to the Campbell County school board in November.

Campbell County School District released the following statement:

"We are immensely troubled and saddened to hear of the arrest of Mr. Noaln and grieve as a district for those impacted. Campbell County Schools' leadership is currently monitoring this situation and working to determine appropriate next steps.

We ask the community for your continued confidence in our commitment to each and every child as we work to provide them with the highest quality education in a safe and secure setting. Out mission calls us to do "Whatever It Takes" to ensure high student achievement and success in college, career and life. We will continue with this mission, regardless of any obstacles placed before us."

He pleaded not guilty in court Friday and was released. 

Judge Elizabeth Chandler placed Nolan on an ankle monitor with no contact with victims and family. 

Attorney General Andy 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, handle cases in which local prosecutors recuse themselves.

A preliminary hearing for 2 p.m. on May 5 in Boone District court.
