CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A former Dunbar police officer is set to plead guilty in federal court stemming from a July incident in which he allegedly sought sexual favors from a woman in exchange for ignoring traffic violations.
Raymond O. Conley is accused of violating the woman's civil rights, according to an information filed in federal court.
A guilty plea hearing is set for Nov. 9 at 1:30 p.m., before Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, according to court filings.
"These things are always sad," said Bill Forbes, the woman's attorney. "Ninety-nine percent of police are good guys, but there are 1 or 2 percent that are bad apples. Unfortunately this young lady ran into a bad apple.
"And it's unfortunate for the city of Dunbar and other police officers who work in the Valley who do a fine job and are honest and trustworthy."
According to Forbes, the woman and a male passenger were pulled over for traffic violations. She had not been drinking and was not accused of doing so, he said.
The woman previously had been caught driving on a revoked driver's license, Forbes said.
"She gets in the cruiser and, as I understand it, the conversation begins that she can get out of trouble," Forbes said previously.
