Kelley's wife and kids must be so proud.

Why would Kearney immediately state Kelley did nothing wrong as far as hearing Tallo's cases in his courtroom? Shouldn't he investigate that first?

I am not at all surprised by this. I attended a party that Kelley was at with this girl (not his wife) and toward the end of the night Kelley got mad at what someone said to him and knocked his ass to the floor causing head trauma. Ambulance and a trip to the hospital was the end result.

Your comment could be relevant as to charactor or propensity for violence. However, to be fair, you should not impune a man's reputation without facts. When was the party? Where was the party? Who was "this girl"? Who was injured? Did anyone notify the police? Without facts, your comment must be viewed as merely fictious and vindictive.

anyone else thats employed by the county gets an automatic suspension without pay when they are brought up on charges why is he still working for the county and getting paid. He is no better than anyone else. so step up county and do what you do to all other employees. whats good for the goose you know the rest.

Presiding over a case when his concubine tries cases in front of him..... Grounds for disbarment and defrocking. He presides over PFA cases as well. High horse butthead is a woman beater himself.

I don't understand why a PFA was issued but he wasn't charged with assault.

Sadly, charges do not have be filed when a PFA is issued. This is something that needs to change, PFA's, like or not are not worth the paper they're written on.

Quite an experience to live in fear,isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave.(of a PFA) Hopefully, Judge Kelley will learn from this "experience" and be more empathetic to those that appear before him.

Great idea! Move the hearing for a guy named "Kelley" to Saint Patrick's Day! Get everybody drunk on green beer, and then let the Irish boy go!

You are right. I might add that they are nothing but paper. If a guy is willing to risk jail to lump you up, is a paper telling him not to really gonna stop him? All it really does is allow the system to be abused by some.

Several yrs ago i brought suit to have children removed from an abusive and destructive environment. after the trial was over (40K in lawyers fees) judge Kellley could find no such abuse or destructive environment. Less than 2 months later the county came to me and asked if we would take the children as they were being removed from the family home. It seems that Judge Kelley was more concerned with his concubine than he was with the welfare of these children. And by the way Judge kelley returned the children to the exact environment and they are still suffering to this day And because we were deemed zealots we were denied contact with these children. Did I mention they are my grandchildren. How wrong is that. this action contributed to the health of my wife and the health of our marriage. We lasted only 1 yr together after that and our lives have now been destroyed as well. Man you talk about collateral damage.

I have read all of the aforementioned comments regarding this judge. Amazingly, I know of the last case, and sad to say that I have actually seen two of these children on facebook with videos pretending to shoot someone, and very offensive language. Wonder if judge kelley will be the judge on these children's criminal case when it happens? I will attend that hearing. Judge Kelley seals cases so only he an unseal them and cover his own mistakes before he is found out. Step up York County. Glad I don't live there. This guys name keeps coming up in the news.
