Alderman Found Fit To Stand Trial

A judge in Jackson County says a Murphysboro alderman is fit to stand trial for kidnapping, sexual abuse and then trying to escape from prison.

47-year-old Ronald Nolan filed an insanity plea after he tried escaping from jail in October. He was in jail on felony charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, kidnapping and unlawful restraint.

He is accused of driving across two counties with a 20-year-old woman against her will. His next court appearance will be March 4.
