Retired Madison priest faces sexual assault charges in Jefferson County

A retired Madison priest has been charged with several criminal counts relating to sexual abuse allegations during his tenure at a Fort Atkinson church.

Bill Nolan, 64, faces counts of second degree sexual assault of a child, according to court records, and made his initial court appearance through a video conference from Jefferson County Jail.

Nolan is a retired priest-in-residence at Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish, parish officials told parishioners in an email Thursday.

Judge Jennifer Weston set bail at $50,000 with the stipulation that Nolan not leave the state, have no contact with any children under the age of 18, no presence at St. Joseph's and no contact with the accuser, court documents show.
