Judge finds probable cause in case against priest accused of sexual abuse

JEFFERSON (WKOW) — A Jefferson County judge says there’s enough probable cause for a trial in the case against Father William Nolan.

The priest, 64, is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy in Fort Atkinson. Father Nolan was arrested in May and charged with six counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child. He was in court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing. 

The investigating officer gave testimony, and the judge found cause to bind the case over for trial.

Nolan will be in court again in July.
