NEWPORT, Kentucky. – A former Kentucky judge has entered into a plea agreement in a human-trafficking case.
Kentucky Attorney General, Andy Beshear’s office said in a press release Friday that the 71-year-old Timothy Nolan will be sentenced March 29. Prosecutors are recommending 20 years for 21 counts. The release said the agreement also calls for Nolan to pay $110,000.
Nolan is a former Campbell County District Court judge. The press release says the felony charges he pleaded to trafficking of adults, the promotion of human trafficking of minors and unlawful transaction with minors.
Nolan’s lawyer told The Cincinnati Enquirer that Nolan is eligible for parole in four years.
Some of Nolan’s pleas were Alford resources, which means that he maintains innocence, but give sufficient evidence for a conviction.
