Former judge pleads not guilty to rape, human trafficking charges

KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

A former Campbell County district judge pleaded not guilty to criminal charges on Wednesday.

Timothy Nolan, 70, of California, KY, was arraigned on nine felony and two misdemeanor charges in a Kenton County courtroom.

He was indicted on the following charges on Thursday:

-1 count human trafficking with a person under age 18 (felony)
-1 count rape (felony)
-5 counts of human trafficking with adults (felony)
-1 count of unlawful transaction with a minor (felony)
-1 count tampering with a witness (felony)
-1 count of third degree unlawful transaction with a minor (misdemeanor)
-1 count of prostitution (misdemeanor)

The charges were filed in Campbell County, but he appeared in Kenton County due to his connections with Campbell County.

The judge issued a $50,000 cash bond or a $100,000 property bond.

During the arraignment, Nolan said he would have a check to the court by the end of the day so he was not taken into custody.

Nolan reported that he had an issue to deal with at a hospital, and the judge allowed him to be free until bond was posted.

In a statement sent by Nolan's attorney on the day of his indictment Thursday, he vowed to fight the allegations.

That same day, Nolan resigned from his position on the Campbell County School Board, "citing to concerns that the baseless and setup charges brought against him today are distracting from the board's important business."

The statement from his attorney also thanked the Campbell County community for "their outpouring of support."

According to Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear, the crimes occurred in August 2016. 

Beshear’s Special Prosecution Division is handling the case.
