I have known him since he was first in recovery also.
And I can safely say "chickens came to roost" on this
bird. I feel bad for not reporting some of the stunts
he pulled with underage females while he was in his
twenties if not thirties.
Ask his friends the real truth.They know it.
I can think of at least ten who are just as guilty as me
for not reporting what he did,who probably knew allot more
then I did about it.
Feels good to finally get that off my chest. Although it
is to late for the other,victims at least they know they
can have some closure.
Drunk or drugged this animal is paying for his playing.

This still haunts me to this day. I feel so bad for his children, especially the victim. I dated him briefly, and I am genuinely surprised. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING stood out to make me think this would happen; he loved WOMEN. He babysat my child many times. He was crazy about me, I knew that. Now, that I look back, I remember a massage table. It was in the kids room. I remember going there after work, getting a massage. With the charges that followed, now that seems strange; at the time it did not because the kids were not there full time and quite frankly, there was not room anywhere else for it. I also knew he was going through a bitter divorce. He was trying to get custody of his children, and he was about to succeed. I know everyone involved, and knew them well. The victim is a sweet and beautiful young lady but I have not seen her since she was a baby. It is unthinkable that she would make this up; but I also wonder if its POSSIBLE to be coerced into doing so for custody reasons. Mom would absolutely go to any lengths to keep her children and she was messing up badly at that time. Kelly just may have won custody. I see a lot about addiction. Here is what I know: he may have been drinking again, but it was not excessive I WAS THERE. I never saw him drunk. I was going through a drug phase with cocaine at the time (but I know what I saw), he would not participate in it with me, not ONCE. He actually was upset with me for doing it! He would not because of his children. He was being responsible. Again, he wanted custody of his children who he loved dearly. Next thing you know, he is in prison. For this. Coincidence?? Too much if you ask me, Kelly and his ex wife HATED each other, it was one of the most hateful partings I have ever seen. All of these things combined, it just leaves room for reasonable doubt for me. It bothers me years later even as I write this, could he be innocent??? Conviction based on a recorded phone call and no physical evidence is just not enough for me. Its possible this could have been made up; not saying it was because I do not want to hurt this family but from a legal standpoint it is POSSIBLE. I know of a woman right now who put her stepfather in prison. He served six years and she recanted her testimony. The man was released, he served six years for NOTHING. IT happens...If I was on that jury, I would not have convicted. This is simply my opinion. I don't want to hurt anyone, especially his children. I still pray for them and think of them often. Such a sad story.

I still feel ashamed I didn't do it back then. We are all

In Kelley's case, he wanted to stick his flesh in every hot babe that came into his cross-hairs. Everyone inside of his circle of friends knew that about Kelly. that was his obsession. He was living on the edge for years..

i was there the day kelly was born. all red and gooey. eeeyyyeewwwhhh
false acusations happen all the time. how exactly did this 8 year girl find herself alone in the company of a grown man ? where was da kids parental unit ? was the parent selling the kid for cash ??? Multiple encounters over a 4 year period. this kid could have any number of personal motives to justify false acusations. this smells way too fishy to automatically crucify the guy. i hate perverts, but kelly deserves his day in court !!
Long time friend??? Right. You don't even know how he spells his name.

I can remember when he was 30 chasing a 14 year

I, of course, can't say whether Kelley is guilty of this horrible crime or not, but I confirm that he definitely had a sex addiction. It's why I ended the relationship we had in the early 90's.

My heart aches for his step-daughter, for his son and for his parents.
