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.

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.
