Criminal charges continue to pile up for a former judge accused of rape and human trafficking in Northern Kentucky.
Former Campbell County District Judge Timothy Nolan, 70, was indicted by a Campbell County grand jury Thursday on eight additional felony charges. Those included two counts of human trafficking; one count of attempted human trafficking with a minor; one count of third-degree sodomy; one count of rape of a female over 12; two counts of unlawful transaction with a minor under 16 – controlled substance; and one count of unlawful transaction with a minor under 18 – controlled substance.
Nolan, of California, Ky., is accused of crimes involving 22 victims, including eight juveniles, the Kentucky attorney general’s office said in a news release Thursday. The crimes allegedly occurred between 2010 and May of this year.
Thursday’s indictment is the fourth issued against Nolan since May and brings the total charges against him to 28 felony counts and two misdemeanors.
Nolan is being held in the Campbell County Detention Center. His next hearing is scheduled for Oct. 27, and Nolan is scheduled to go to trial on Feb. 27.
