Crime Q&A: What happened to man accused of seeking sexual encounter with teen in Auburn?

Q: What was the conclusion of the charges against Tim Nosal? He was accused in 2014, but I can’t find anything conclusive about if he was found guilty.

Rochelle, Citrus Heights

A: Timothy Robert Nosal of Fair Oaks was arrested in July 2014 after he allegedly went to Auburn expecting a sexual rendezvous with a 13-year-old girl and was met instead by Placer County sheriff’s detectives.

According to the Placer Count Superior Court records available online, he pleaded no contest to attempted unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and distribution of harmful matter to a minor. He was sentenced in October 2015 to 90 days in an alternative sentencing program.

Nosal originally attracted the attention of detectives with an online ad, according a story in The Sacramento Bee. A detective corresponded with Nosal for several weeks, posing as a 13-year-old girl. On the day of his arrest, Nosal reportedly drove from his job in Rancho Cordova for a planned meeting with the “girl” at Ashford Park in Auburn.
