Former Judge Tim Nolan, who was Donald Trump’s campaign chair in Campbell County, has plead guilty to 21 counts of human trafficking, giving drugs and alcohol to minors and more.
According to court records, Nolan used drugs, threats of arrest and eviction to coerce women and girls under the age of 18 into sex acts.
In addition to 20 years in prison, Nolan is ordered to pay a $100,000 fine.
At his sentencing, he thanked his attorneys, the judge and a doctor who was involved in his case “who made me realize things.”
Nolan isn’t the first Trump campaign figure to go to prison over sex trafficking charges.
Last year, Oklahoma state Sen. Ralph Shortey, who served as Trump’s campaign chair in his state, was convicted on child prostituion charges and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
