A Jefferson County prosecutor [Matthew C. Conway] was tipped off by Louisville narcotics detectives twice in the past two years that he was under investigation for possible drug use or trafficking, according to police records obtained by The Courier-Journal...
When investigators learned of the leaks and interrogated the two detectives and the prosecutor last March, all three initially gave false or misleading statements about what happened, those records show. The statements of Matthew C. Conway, the prosecutor, were made under oath.
Conway told investigators he had lied to protect Russ, because “I just didn’t wanna see him lose his job over this. And, it was foolish and I’m sorry, it is wrong, and, you know, I’m paying for it now,” the records show.
