Monroe Man Bound Over for Trial in Green County Circuit Court


Jeffrey Conway is charged with multiple counts of commercial gambling.


MADISON — On May 9, 2012, a preliminary hearing was held in the case of State of Wisconsin v. Jeffrey Conway in Green County Circuit Court before the Hon. James Beer. The Court found that probable cause existed to believe that Mr. Conway committed felonies and bound him over for trial. An arraignment is scheduled for May 21, 2012, at 2:00 p.m.


According to the criminal complaint, Mr. Conway was a party to the crime of taking bets on sporting events, including College and Professional Football and NCAA Tournament Basketball, over a two-year period. The Monroe Police Department and the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ), Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) conducted the investigation. The case is being handled by Assistant Attorney General Richard J. Dufour.


While Jeffrey Conway has been charged with a criminal offense, he is presumed innocent and the state must prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
