Residents in and around Morgan County say they're shocked by the news that Judge Executive Tim Conley was arrested Monday.
Many say Conley was a well-respected politician who played a big role in helping rebuild West Liberty after the 2012 tornado destroyed more than a thousand buildings in the town.
Conley is being indicted for misappropriation of funds to the city of West Liberty for the reconstruction effort. The indictment also alleges Conley solicited and accepted kickbacks for county construction projects.
Conley is due in Federal Court in Lexington on Tuesday.
