    I'm not surprised in the least. The Campbell County tea party is full of misfits and criminals.

    From the article on top of the serious stuff:

    Nolan is also a current member of Campbell County School Board. After news broke of Nolan’s arrest Friday, the school district released a statement saying in part, “We are immensely troubled and saddened to hear of the arrest of Mr. Nolan and grieve as a district for those impacted. Campbell County Schools’ leadership is currently monitoring this situation and working to determine appropriate next steps.”

    I never met the guy but many who have say they aren't surprised that he was involved in some type of scandal or another. Many different people have used the words "used car salesman" to describe him. That can't be good.

    AKA the hanging judge.

    If he is guilty, it will be interesting to see what the punishment is.

    Why is Deters on the video clip giving his opinion. Is he just a publicity hound and putting his face in front of every camera up that way?

    Yep. And they labeled him as an attorney which he's not. Per his commercials he is a non-attorney spokesman. LOL

    Is that because he was disbarred?

    Suspended and then resigned rather than seek reinstatement for whatever reason.

    Former NKY judge Nolan now faces rape and witness tampering charges

    A former Northern Kentucky judge accused of human trafficking now faces criminal counts of rape and witness tampering.

    A Campbell County grand jury Thursday indicted former judge Tim Nolan with 11 charges, including first-degree rape, witness tampering, prostitution as well as human trafficking charges and providing a minor with drugs and alcohol.

    Police filed the human trafficking and minor alcohol charges last month when they arrested the 70-year-old Nolan, and the indictment just takes those charges one step further.

    Nolan faces a maximum sentence of more than 100 years if convicted - including 20 years on the rape charge alone. Also Thursday, Nolan resigned his post on the Campbell County School Board according to a statement from his lawyer Margo Grubbs.

    In her statement, Grubbs said the charges were "baseless" and that Nolan "intends to mount a vigorous defense to the allegations and claims made against him."

    Grubbs did not return messages seeking further comment.

    The indictment was announced by Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear, whose office declined further comment.

    Beshear's special prosecution division is handling the case, and all the filings are being funneled through the Boone County Circuit Clerk's office. That's because Campbell County Circuit Clerk Taunya Nolan Jack is Tim Nolan's daughter.

    The indictment doesn't reveal many details about the case, other than alleging Nolan tried to induce a possible witness identified only as "M.R." to either not testify or change his or her testimony. In addition, the rape charge is new, although no specifics other than the initials of the alleged victim were released. The rape charge nor the new human trafficking charges indicate the age of the alleged victim.

    The case has caused major shock throughout the Campbell County political establishment, where the outspoken 70-year-old Nolan was very active. Voters just elected Nolan to the school board last November.

    To avoid conflicts of interest, a special judge from out of the area, District Court Elizabeth Chandler from Carroll County, is presiding over the case and all court documents are being filed in Boone County.

    Police arrested Nolan after the last set of charges; he was released on $50,000 bond and placed on an ankle monitor last month. The grand jury Thursday asked the judge overseeing the case to raise that bond to $750,000.

    He is due in court Friday for a preliminary hearing on the initial human trafficking charges filed by police last month.

    After leaving the bench in the mid-1980s, Nolan became a controversial and outspoken figure in local politics. He became a fixture at Campbell County Fiscal Court meetings challenging many decisions, sometimes by filing suit. He filed suit in 2008 challenging the location of county offices in Newport. He lost that challenge.

    He also filed a defamation lawsuit after being called racist by a website created by other Republicans in Campbell County. That suit is still pending.
