D.A.: Third victim triggers another charge against Nolen

Former Lipan High School teacher and head baseball coach Tyson James “T.J.” Nolen, 25, already charged with four felony counts earlier this week alleging sexual crimes committed against two 16-year-old female students, is now accused of sexual assault of a female student under age 14, District Attorney Rob Christian said Friday afternoon. Nolen’s latest charge, continuous sexual abuse of a child, is a first-degree felony count with a punishment range of 25 years to life in prison with no parole if convicted, Christian noted. Nolen remains in the Hood County Jail with bonds totaling $375,000. Christian said the investigation is ongoing.
