Indictment returned on AAU basketball coach


A week after he was accused of raping a teenager, a Radcliff man, who co-founded a local girls’ AAU basketball program, has been indicted by a Hardin County grand jury on two felony charges.

Corvell Conley, 41, was indicted Thursday. He was arrested April 26 and charged with rape of a teenager under the age of 16. Authorities say the girl had participated in the Kentucky Future program.

Conley was indicted on third-degree rape and third-degree sodomy charges — Class D felonies punishable by one to five years in prison on each charge, if convicted. He was arrested by Radcliff Police Department.

The assault allegedly happened April 24 following a practice, according to an arrest citation.

The girl reported to authorities that Conley was driving her home from a basketball practice when he stopped on South Wilson Road and engaged in sexual intercourse with the girl in the backseat of his vehicle.

According to a medical report from Hardin Memorial Hospital, the findings of a sexual assault nurse examiner were consistent with the teen’s statements.

Conley has been held in lieu of a $5,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center since his arrest.
