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.
Conley has until March 24th to report to jail.
