Area legal community stunned by sex charges against former judge

Just a few minutes south of Cincinnati, the arrest of a former district judge has many in the legal community puzzled. Law enforcement officials recently announced the arrest of former Campbell County District Judge Tim Nolan, accusing the 70-year-old of human trafficking and unlawful transaction with a minor.

The outspoken conservative was elected in November to the Campbell County School Board and also served as the chair of the county's Trump presidential campaign last year.

Cincinnati.com reports that in court documents, Nolan is accused of inducing a minor into sexual activity and giving the minor alcohol. The documents do not state how old the minor was at the time of the alleged incident.

Nolan was a county judge in the 1970s and '80s, the news report states. His daughter is now the Campbell County Circuit Court Clerk.

Officials concerned with possible conflicts of interest have already assigned a judge from outside of the area to the case.

The former judge posted bond and was released with an ankle monitor.

A statement from the school board says members are “immensely troubled and saddened to hear of the arrest," but had not determined what its next steps, if any, should be.

Clearly, more than just Nolan's reputation is on the line here. He faces the possibility that he will lose both his political career and freedom if found guilty on all charges.

In these types of publicized situations, it makes sense for the accused to discuss facts, evidence and allegations with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
