Ex-WV Police Officer Sentenced for Violating Civil Rights

A federal judge has sentenced a former Dunbar police officer to a year in prison for violating a woman's civil rights.

Raymond O. Conley pleaded guilty to the charge in December. The 40-year-old admitted in court that he asked the woman for sexual favors in exchange for dropping a drug charge against her.

U.S. District Thomas Johnston told Conley during Wednesday's sentencing hearing that his behavior undermined the public confidence and trust in law enforcement officers.

Conley resigned from the Dunbar Police Department after he was charged. Under the plea agreement, he must surrender his law enforcement certification.
