Morgan County Judge executive is accused of asking for and taking kickbacks for projects in his tornado ravaged community.

Morgan County Judge Executive Tim Conley plead not guilty to all counts, and his trial will start in early February.

A judge released him on bond, and Conley walked out of federal court on Monday afternoon.

He walked out as the Morgan County Judge Executive.

A judge released him to home incarceration on several conditions.

One is that he cannot have any contact direct or indirect with any employee of Morgan County. The government will choose a person Conley can communicate with to fulfill his duties as Judge Executive.

We learned in court that Conley's secretary is his sister-in-law, and the judge ruled Conley cannot have contact with her.

The government accuses Conley of soliciting and accepting kick backs in exchange for construction contracts.

The owners of the construction company were also indicted.
