Tea Party leader and former Trump campaign chair Tim Nolan has pleaded guilty and received 20 years in prison for human trafficking, reports Cincinnati.com. Report Advertisement According to the report, Nolan, 71, a former judge, used drugs and threats of arrest to force women and girls under the age of 18 into sex acts. Pleading guilty to 21 of the counts filed against him -- for crimes committed dating back to 2004 -- Nolan accepted a plea deal where he will serve 20 years in prison and pay a $100,000 fine, becoming eligible for parole in four years, his attorney stated. Some of the incidents occurred in the summer of 2016 while Judge Nolan was serving as the chair of the Donald Trump campaign in Campbell County, KY.

Nolan served as a district judge in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and had just been elected to the Campbell County School Board in 2016 prior to being indicted.

According to a report read by Judge Kathleen Lape, Nolan paid some victims with heroin and painkillers in exchange for sex and threatened at least one victim, who lived on his property in southern Campbell County, with eviction unless she performed sex acts on him. Additionally Nolan told some of his victims -- some under the age of 18 -- that he would turn them into to the FBI if they didn't comply with his demands.

Nolan faced more than 100 years in prison on 28 felony charges, including four counts of human trafficking of a minor.

This isn't the first time a Trump campaign chair has plead guilty to trafficking:

Former Trump campaign chair to plead guilty on child sex trafficking charges

Ralph Shortey, a former Oklahoma state senator and Trump campaign chair in the state, will plead guilty to charges of child sex trafficking.

Shortey, who remains married to the woman with whom he has four daughters, was found in a hotel room with a 17-year old, whom he had offered money for "sexual stuff" when he expressed a need for money for spring break.

In exchange for pleading guilty on the prostitution charges, U.S. prosecutors have reportedly agreed to drop three child pornography counts against him. He is expected to plead guilty on November 30. A district judge will decide his punishment in a sentencing set for next year.

Yeah, and look how Trump rewarded the guy who gave Epstein that deal:

Labor pick Acosta gave ‘sweetheart deal' to sex offender Epstein

President Trump's pick for Labor Secretary is likely to face scrutiny for the "sweetheart" deal he gave to billionaire convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Acosta, the law school dean of Florida International University, is also likely to face controversy for his record as U.S. attorney in Miami from 2005 to 2009.

His office prosecuted Epstein, a billionaire financier who admitted to state charges of soliciting prostitution from a 14-year-old, and signed off in 2008 on the plea deal to not pursue federal charges in exchange for the state pleas.

Agreed, but if you want to go the guilt by association route, Bubba is a pal of the Epsteiner.

#14 Yes, I'm well aware of that, but what does that have to do with Trump nominating Acosta for Labor Secretary? You think Trump was covering up for himself and Bill? I doubt he'd care if Bill got exposed for something as long as he himself didn't.

Old boys club in which Acosta protected Epstein and Trump in turn promoted Acosta.

Please educate me because I feel ignorant on the subject.

How do you traffic people? Perhaps I'm not understanding the situation. But wouldn't the victims fight back? Try to escape? Contact authorities?

Perhaps it's easier with children. Smaller, less aware, easier to overpower.

And then what do you do when the victims are too old to be profitable? Are they killed off?

I just don't get it.

Clown, there is no shortage of resources if this is something you're inclined to give a ---- about. It's not that common with people from the US...they're more likely to do those things you suggest. It's different for those who grew up in different countries, particularly the developing world. Offering a few hundred dollars to a poor teen from Guatemala would be like offering tens of thousands to a poor American. They're amounts that defy comprehension.

"It's not that common with people from the US"

The U.S. Justice Department estimates that 14,500–17,500 people are trafficked into the country every year. en.wikipedia.org

You nailed it. I really don't care enough to become well informed. Which is why I'm ignorant on the subject.

What you write kinda makes sense. If people are being paid to be trafficked then they wouldn't be inclined to escape.

I'll leave it at that.

" If people are being paid to be trafficked then they wouldn't be inclined to escape. "

Like if you pay a boy to turn tricks, he might be inclined to maintain that source of livelihood for himself and possibly his family too.
Your'e not trying to say this sort of economic coercion isn't trafficking, right? Because that would be pretty... ignorant.

From other countries. Not from the US to somewhere else, or within the US.

"Up to 300,000 Americans under 18 are lured into the commercial sex trade every year. From 14,500 - 17,500 of those victims are trafficked into the United States each year."

A more conservative estimate from 2014 puts the number of American kids at 100,000. www.huffingtonpost.com

It isn't all bad. Some victims marry rich old guys and end up in a white house.

Just like my child molesting brother, who made sure to tell me he voted for Trump before he killed himself.

Not all Republicans are child molesters, but it does seem many molesters are Republicans.

that he was a molester and that he committed suicide.

I lost a brother to alcohol assisted suicide about 12 years ago. He wasn't a molester or anything like that but he was in a very bad place, emotionally.

Sorry to hear that TFD.

My neighbors had a similar problem when a 24 year old niece of theirs murdered a six month old infant while driving drunk and high on cocaine and wrote a letter to the judge that she has been an alcoholic since high school and an addict for years whose parents would not force her to get help she needs and the best would be a nice long prison sentence for no other reason than to keep her from killing someone else again.

It had the added benefit of really cutting down on their christmas card list too.

BREITBART – KATHERINE RODRIGUEZ

A senior policy adviser for former President Barack Obama resigned and was convicted of sex crimes after following women and taking photos up their skirts, according to documents released Monday.

The Daily Mail reported that William Mendoza, 42, stepped down from his position as executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education in November 2016 after authorities arrested and charged him with attempted voyeurism.

See post #37. Often times there is some kind of threat or coercion involved. Sometimes the trafficked person is an addict who stays to get their next fix.

Stockholm Syndrome can be strong. Especially when the victims are started young. Sometimes people are rescued from trafficking situations, then escape their rescuers to return to the life they know.
