An arrest of a former district judge in Northern Kentucky on a human trafficking charge has shocked the community.

Police arrested former Campbell County District Judge Tim Nolan on charges of human trafficking and unlawful transaction with a minor, according to court documents and a release from Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear.
