(Boone County, Ky.) – A Boone County attorney has been indicted on human trafficking charges.

Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced Wednesday that a Boone County Grand Jury indicted Robert L. Pool on four counts of Human Trafficking – Commercial Sex Activity (Class C Felony), and one county of Bribing a Witness (Class D Felony).

The charges stem from an investigation of former Campbell County District Judge Tim Nolan, who was sentenced in 2018 to 20 years in prison for human trafficking charges.

“These charges demonstrate the often complex and connected web that traffickers can weave when targeting victims,” said Attorney General Cameron.  “I’m grateful for the work of the Erlanger Police Department and our Human Trafficking Investigation Unit, and I appreciate Assistant Attorney General Barbara Whaley’s work on this case, and related cases, to ensure the victims receive justice.”

Poole was already facing human trafficking and other charges in Kenton County and is set for trial in September. The newly announced charges in Boone County will also be prosecuted at the September trial.

Poole’s bond has been set at $100,000.
