CAMPBELL COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC) - A former Campbell County district judge was arrested Friday on sex charges.

Tim Nolan, a current member of the Campbell County school board and outspoken supporter of the local Tea Party was in court on three sex charges involving an underage girl.

Nolan turned himself in after an investigation that's gone on since at least February resulted in an arrest warrant.

The 70-year-old Nolan is charged with one count of human trafficking for allegedly subjecting a minor under the age of 18 to commercial sexual activity.

He's also facing one count of unlawful transaction with a minor first degree for allegedly inducing a minor to engage in sexual activity and one count of unlawful transaction with a minor third degree for allegedly giving alcohol to a minor.

Nolan surrendered to Campbell County police officers Friday afternoon and was taken to the Boone County courthouse for an arraignment.

The case is being handled in Boone County because the prosecutor, clerk and judges in Campbell County all stepped aside due to potential conflicts of interest.

Special judge Elizabeth Chandler from Carrollton lowered Nolan's original $50,000 bond in court.

She ordered Nolan to wear an electronic ankle monitor and stay 1,000 feet away from the alleged victim and her family.

Nolan had no comment Friday. He entered a not guilty plea.

His attorney, Margo Grubbs, says the allegations are baseless and she looks forward to defending Nolan.

The alleged crimes took place in July and August of 2016.

Campbell County police searched Nolan's home in February.

Tim Nolan was elected to the Campbell County school board last November.

He served as a Campbell County district judge from 1978 to 1986.

Only Local 12's cameras and reporter Joe Webb were there as Nolan was escorted into court Friday.
