State Police say 30-year old Billy Ferguson of West Liberty, was arrested at the state prison in Morgan County where he works as a correctional officer. He was charged with assault, unlawful imprisonment and official misconduct, according to the Big Sandy Correctional Institute website.
Tim Conley of Morgan County was hailed by many as a hero for leading the rebuilding efforts in West Liberty after it was devastated by a tornado two years ago. Conley stood before a federal judge Tuesday and admitted that he used that tragedy for his own personal gain.
Two years after a deadly, destructive tornado, more help is on the way to West Liberty. The Clinton Global Initiative announced a plan to spend almost $8 million to build 52 housing units for people displaced by the storm.
