Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Former police officer in court

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A former Dunbar police officer was in federal court Monday to face charges of violating a woman's civil rights.

Raymond Conley didn't have any comment as he left the courthouse. He was there for a plea hearing, where he was expected to plead guilty, but the hearing was pushed back to Nov. 19.

Bill Forbes, the victim's attorney, says Conley abused his power and took advantage of a young woman.

Forbes says Conley pulled the victim and her boyfriend over this past summer. The woman alleges Conley told the boyfriend, then asked her to perform a sexual act on him. In exchange, he offered to not charge her for driving on a suspended license.

Forbes says Conley took the woman to a remote hollow, and she did what he asked because she was scared.

Conley has resigned from the Dunbar Police Department.
