FRANKFORT, KY. (Thu 4 May 2017) - Attorney General Andy Beshear announced today that a Campbell County Grand Jury has indicted a former Campbell County district judge on nine felony and two misdemeanor counts.

Timothy Nolan, 70, of California, KY, was indicted 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 felony; 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.

An arrest warrant was sought for Nolan April 20 by the Campbell County Police Department for the crimes that occurred in August 2016. Special Campbell District Judge Elizabeth Chandler arraigned Nolan on April 21 on those charges and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 5.

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
