LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A Jefferson County prosecutor entangled in a drug investigation has resigned, but did not disclose the reason.
Matt Conway, the younger brother of Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, turned in a two-sentence letter on Friday. Commonwealth's Attorney David Stengel told The Courier-Journal he did not demand Conway's resignation and it was unrelated to drugs.
Matt Conway was the subject of drug investigations in 2008 and 2009, but not charged either time. Conway admitted to investigators that Louisville Police Detective Ronald Russ had tipped him off that he was a subject of a drug probe. Police Chief Robert White fired Russ in December.
Conway could not be reached for comment.
A spokeswoman for Jack Conway said he was unaware of his brother's resignation.
