The former chairman for Trump’s campaign in Kentucky was sentenced for drugging minors and have sex with them.
Former Judge Tim Nolan on Friday agreed to spend 20 years in prison for human trafficking.
He used drugs, threats of arrest and threats of eviction to force women and girls under the age of 18 into sex acts, according to the charges read in court by Judge Kathleen Lape.
Nolan pleaded guilty to 21 counts dating back to 2004. In addition to human trafficking and attempted human trafficking, the charges included giving drugs and alcohol to minors.
Under the plea agreement, Nolan will serve 20 years in prison and pay a $100,000 fine. He would be eligible for parole in four years, his attorney said. The judge will sentence him on March 29.
Of course, the idiot judge reduced his sentence because he was a politician:
Pathetic. I would think his “service” would be erased after drugging and molesting kids, but what do I know, I’m not a genius judge like she is.
So if you sexually assault minors, but were able to get people to vote for you, you get a lower sentence than the rest of us losers. Amazing.
The counts provided terse descriptions of what Nolan was alleged to have done. In some instances, he asked a minor to give her a backrub and engage in sexual conduct for money, according to the charges.
Here is what the charges read by Lape revealed:
- Nolan paid some victims with heroin and painkillers in exchange for sex.
- At least one victim lived on his property in southern Campbell County. He threatened eviction unless sex acts were performed.
- He threatened some victims with arrest, including telling one victim he’d call friends in the FBI and other law enforcement to arrest her.Nolan faced more than 100 years in prison on 28 felony charges, including four counts of human trafficking of a minor. The total number of victims covered by the 21 charges he pleaded to is 19, including some juveniles.
“The punishment in this case does not undo the trauma inflicted on the victims, but it brings closure and some justice,” said Attorney General Andy Beshear in a statement. “I want to thank the Campbell County Police Department and our special prosecutions team for working this case.”
Something don’t smell right in this case.
They even let him out on only $50,000 bond during the case!!
Must be nice to have friends in high places.
