Prominent attorney Robert Poole was seen leaving the Erlanger police station with officers to take care of a legal matter—his own.
Poole is accused in a 15-count indictment that includes human trafficking of women and girls, and rape.
“This is the culmination of a nine-month investigation,” said Erlanger police Detective Tom Loos.
Investigators said Poole was a protégé of former Judge Timothy Nolan, who was convicted of similar crimes and is now serving a 20-year sentence.
“They were a team, as many victims described them,” Loos said. “They shared victims, they shared information, they used the same recruiting methods.”
Police said many of the sexual encounters were at Poole’s Erlanger law office and also at places he had rented for his victims.
Detectives said Poole and Nolan had more than a dozen victims.
“They looked for girls who were dependent, girls addicted to drugs and used that against them,” Loos said.
Poole was given a $100,000 bond. He’s scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 26.
