Kentucky judge who was Trump campaign official raped 17 women and girls

President Donald Trump’s former top campaign official in the state of Kentucky is behind bars facing a long list of sex abuse charges against women and minor girls, who he reportedly coerced into performing sex acts against their will by using “money, drugs, housing, threats to call the probation office, and violent acts.”

The Associated Press reported Sunday that former Judge Tim Nolan’s bond was set high at $750,000 by Judge Elizabeth Chandler, who looked at the extensive list of charges against Nolan and deemed him “a danger to the community.”

Prosecutors allege that Nolan forced himself on 17 women and girls over the course of seven years. He is currently in the Campbell County Jail awaiting trial.

Nolan’s fall from Republican power player in the state to alleged sexual predator has taken many by surprise.

He is “a fixture at Tea Party rallies and local government meetings,” and ran Trump’s 2016 campaign in the state.
