Ex-judge pleads not guilty to more human trafficking charges

BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A former Kentucky judge has pleaded not guilty to six more charges of human trafficking.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/2s3pY9w ) that in court Monday, Judge Elizabeth Chandler declined to reduce 70-year-old Tim Nolan’s $750,000 cash bond, calling him “potentially a danger to the community.” Nolan has pleaded not guilty to a total of 12 counts of human trafficking, including two with minors.

Nolan was a district judge in Campbell County from 1978 to 1985. Along with the human trafficking charges, he’s been charged with rape, unlawful transaction with a minor and prostitution.

Authorities have released few details about Nolan’s alleged crimes. Attorney General Andy Beshear says the crimes occurred between 2010 and May 2017. Court hearings revealed that some of Nolan’s alleged victims live on his property as tenants.
