The mail fraud charge stemmed from Conley's letter in August 2013 to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. The letter advised state officials that PBTHNOJJ had completed the three bridges and sought payment, prosecutors said.

As a result of the scheme, PBTHNOJJ got about $1.1 million in contracts, according to court documents.

Conley ran unopposed in the spring GOP primary. Murphy said Conley hopes to finish out his term. He will withdraw from the general election in November.

Gambill and his wife, an executive at PBTHNOJJ, pleaded guilty last month. Their sentencing was set for November.
