Fair Oaks Resident Arrested in Online Under-Age Sex Sting
A Fair Oaks man was reportedly arrested after showing up for what he thought was to be a sexual rendezvous with a 13-year-old girl, according to an official press release from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office.
Timothy Robert Nosal, 48, of Fair Oaks was reportedly arrested yesterday, Monday, July 1, 2014, and charged with communicating with a minor with the intent to commit a sexual act and attempted lewd and lascivious acts with someone under the age of 14. His bail was reportedly set at $100,000. Nosal is reportedly an environmental scientist for the State Department of Fish and Wildlife.
According to Placer County Sheriff, the suspect had originally attracted the attention of detectives with an online ad. A detective, reportedly posing as a 13-year-old girl, began corresponding with Nosal for several weeks. During his lunch hour on July 1, Nosal reportedly drove from his job in Rancho Cordova for a planned meeting with the “girl” at Ashford Park in Auburn. Instead, he was reportedly met by detectives, arrested and booked at the Placer County Jail without incident.
