Conley Receives Sentence

FRANKFORT, Ky (WTVQ Web Desk) – Former Morgan County Judge-Executive Tim Conley learned his fate today in a federal courthouse.

A judge told him this morning that he will be spending 87 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. Conley will also have to pay $104,000 dollars to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, along with $26,000 to Morgan County.

Conley is accused of steering a million dollars in work to a construction company, rebuilding after a deadly March 2012 tornado, in exchange for more than $120,000 dollars in kickbacks.  Conley pleaded guilty in August to a fraud charge stemming from that scheme.
