Jeffrey Conway Sentenced in Green County for Bookmaking Operation

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has announced that on January 30, 2013, Jeffrey Conway was sentenced in Green County for his part in an illegal bookmaking operation.  Mr. Conway entered a plea to two counts relating to the taking of bets on sporting events during the 2006 and 2007 football seasons, and the 2006 and 2007 NCAA basketball tournaments.  


The court withheld sentence on both counts and placed him on probation for a period of 18 months.  Conditions of probation included the payment of costs and supervision fees, and no gambling activity.  The defendant also is to obtain and maintain full-time employment, compliance with all rules of supervision, and the defendant is to submit a DNA sample and pay the surcharge.  In addition, on Count 6, the court imposed a fine of $10,000 plus the applicable costs and penalty assessments.


The case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Richard J. Dufour.  The Monroe Police Department and the Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) at the Department of Justice investigated the offense.
