Looks like the Bradford Mom is the lair. Joseph Robert Kelly Admitted to the rape. Joseph Kelly's Dad (a single parent) was told By Detective Mueller that Joe admitted to the rape. All this is written in the police report.His first court date Sept 28th @ 9:30 am Starke Court House case # 04-2010-CF-000078-A - Gaige Lee Griffis who ran for a week before turning himself in (Why would he run for a week Hmmmmmm??)- He is not talking was told not admit anything by his attorney. His court date also Sept 28, 2010 9:30 am 945 N temple Ave Starke, case # 04-2010-cf-000078-B. Thomas Drew Reddish admitted to having sex with a drunk 15 year old. Case # 04 2010-CJ-000022-A. All 3 were charged with Rape of a minor. DNA evidence has not come back yet from the 3 rubbers found in the bathroom. All 3 are guilty and will be found guilty. Too much evidence against them. There is also a 4th person involved

All those Boy's that took part in this rape charge should be charge as adult because this is a serious charge, they no what they were doing you just can't put this on the back burner and turn the heat down.there is a (consequence)for this type behavior.even if she was intoxicated do you really beleive she would have taken them all on!!if she were sober!!no I don't think so.iam only talking because iam a concern parent.Who got her drunk!!I guess you would say she got that way on her on the devil is a liar.beleive me the boys had input.they need to be label as sex offenders and sent to prison,with probation supervision after a prison term so the courts can make sure incidents like this will never happen again by these Boy's justic should take it course (RESPECT).........

Well, Joe Kelly had another court hearing yesterday.
He was late came in alone made it by about 10 mins before he was called up.- The Judge wanted to know what they had for a defense - Nothing so far - The defense wants to have more depositions taken.
Seems to be a stall tactic to keep out of jail during Christmas time. Now Gage Griffis is admitting to having sex with her. He had too the DNA would proved it if not. He has a hearing next week. We will see what they will try to come up with for a defense -

After seeing these Bradford kids you can really tell they are all scums. The Bradford High school is one of the lowest quality school in Florida. With a poor education and poor up bringing this is what you get.
Kids like drew reddish and gage griffis raping young girls after supplying liquor and or beer to incapacitate them first. Everyone wants to have these scumbags put away before they attack again

Hey don't judge us just because of what a few kids did. We as a school strive to be better. We are trying. To say we are all scum because of what few have done, in fact only three, would make you an ignorant and judgmental fool.

What I would like to know is Where was the person who threw the party when the rape occurred? Or was he actually one of the guys that was arrested for the assault? I hope these bad guys do not get off easy. I am glad I don't have to have to raise my daughter in that town. I am sure they there are a few good kids out there I hope. But I heard more bad than good from out there about those kids.

I am from a big town and have moved here because the school's in the big towns are a joke for the most part. The county nor the schools have anything to do with how these children were raised. This goes back to parents teaching their children right from wrong. Why was a 15 year old girl at a party like that? When I drop my kid off at a house, I know what PARENT is their and I have no problem going back to check on her to make sure she is where she is suppose to be. That is being a parent. Having to stop what you are doing or planned on doing to be proactive in your childcare's lives. The only thing about this town that is wrong is that because of some of the last names I can see this will probably be an unfair trial. They should move this trial because some of those families have been here forever and it won't get judged fairly. I know because my friend's husband was stabbed in the neck by a known name and he got no jail time, just had to go to rehab. So hopefully those boys will get punished or they will think they can get away with anything.

According to the report the girl was spending the night at a girlfriends house (parents were home).
The person who lived at the party house (Dillon) picked up both girls in his truck and took them back to his house (parents not home). From there they were offered beer and liquor. The girl remember taking a few drinks and then passing out. Later waking up to 4 guys in the room 3 of them were raping her.
I agree this might be an unfair trial.
If that happens or apprears to be headed that way then a jury trail in Jacksonville will be requested.
Joseph Kelley has a female judge. I would hope that she would not go easy on him.
Court again Jan 24th for drew and for Joe Kelly Jan. 25

To bradford 2011 - No one asked you because from your statement we see that you are an uneducated idiot. I would bet that you go to or have have been at the bradford high school. If you knew anything about the law then you would know that the state would not file charges without ample evidence. The detective would not have arrested them If Joe Kelley had not admitted that they got her drunk and raped her. The end result will show the truth. Those rapist will go to prison where they belong.

To all of you ignorant ass holes, all charges were dropped, Jess, admitted to being a liar, and the boys were free to go. I do attend Bradford High School, and can tell you I'm far from ignorant. I can guarantee I'll outsmart just about any of you uneducated pricks who decided to comment on this post and make us look like stupid rednecks. I'm sorry, but in MY town, if a girl is found ON TOP of a boy during sex, it's not rape, not to mention she dated on of the boys in the past. If I had sex with three guys in one night, and woke up with a hangover and the knowledge that I was going to look like the biggest slut in the school on Monday, I'd probably think yelling rape was a genius plan. I guess I'm just a little smarter than the average inbread in my town, from the way you make us look.

Thank you
It's been 6 years since the girls accused the 3 of raping her..
She was seen by a Doctor 3 days after she was supposedly raped..
It's public record look it up
Gaige Griffis was not charged with anything and other 2 were scared I guess and admitted to something??
My advice to anyone who reads the telegraph, please realize that everything you read is NOT fact..
The girl Jessica lied and never testified to any of her allegations.. Hmmm?
Wonder why? She lied about her age on Facebook.. The attorneys use Facebook to read posts and everyone needs to read hers!!
Wow she needs to pray and ask for forgiveness for what she tried to do..
Karma is already working on her..
She has a baby and has no Daddy in his life
She had hers coming!
The 3 young men are doing good!! Thank God above
She could have ruined their lives!!
