State of Indiana v. Robert M. Nolan Sentencing Hearing

Robert Matthew Nolan, 39, formerly of New Albany, was found guilty on July 2, 2010 of four counts of sexual abuse–the result of a multi-day jury trial.

Today, during a sentencing hearing in Floyd County Superior Court 3, Judge Maria Granger ordered Nolan to serve a 30 year sentence. Under the Judge’s order, Nolan is sentenced to 30 years, with 22 years to serve and eight years of supervised probation.

The State had argued for a sentence of 30 years, with 26 years to serve and four years supervised probation.

Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson said that he believed justice was served this morning.

“I’m pleased with the Judge’s sentence. In this situation, there are no winners, but it is my hope that the victim and her family can move on with their lives,”  he said.

Nolan was convicted of four counts: Count 1: Child Molesting, a Class C Felony; Count 2: Child Seduction, a Class D Felony; Count 3: Child Seduction, a Class D Felony; and Count 4: Rape, a Class B Felony.
