Fighting for Justice!
On July 15, 2014, Greg Kelley was named guilty of sexual assault of a child. He was given 25 years in prison without parole. The problem is, he was convicted based solely on the testimony of a 4 year old boy. Not to discredit the words of a 4 year old, but no other supporting evidence was given. Kelley was never interrogated by the police, no other suspects were sought out, and the police department kept their investigation focused only on Kelley without admitting there could be other explanations. This site is in place to help consolidate and distribute information to the public as to the details of the case so you can make your own judgment as to Kelley's guilt or innocence. We believe he was wrongly charged, by not allowing more evidence in support of Kelley's innocence to be brought forward. We feel this was a witch-hunt with only Kelley as the target. This could happen to any of our young men or women moving forward if we allow this type of court precedent to be set.
We are NOT saying that the 4-year-old boy was not sexual assaulted at some point in his young life. He very likely was, given that he had detailed knowledge of explicit sexual activity. However, we do not feel that there was enough evidence to name Kelley as the perpetrator. The police never considered any other suspects /there was NO investigation on other possible suspects.
This movement is ALSO fully in support of helping those who are the victims of sexual abuse and are looking for ways to help in that area too. Both young men were victims in this case, not just one.
