State police said the new charges against Conley are related to his August case and arrest.
Conley was arrested August 2 by state police and charged with predatory sexual assault against a child, a class A-II felony (click here for previous story). According to police, an investigation began on July 31, 2018, after images consistent with child pornography were uploaded to a social media platform. A search warrant was executed at the Conley residence and a forensic exam of all electronic media was completed by members of the State Police Computer Crime Unit. Investigators discovered images and videos of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 7 and were able to identify Conley as the suspect.
Conley was arraigned in the town of Cazenovia Court at that time and was remanded to the Madison County Jail without bail.
Police stated in August that the investigation of Conley was continuing by members of the state police and Homeland Security Investigations and further criminal charges could occur.
This investigation was conducted by members of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, which includes members of the NYSP, Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Marshals Service. State Police were also assisted by the Madison County Child Advocacy Center.
