Leander teen to serve 25 years in prison, no parole, for child sexual assault conviction

A former Leander High School football player has accepted a plea deal that means he will spend 25 years in prison and give up his right to appeal, for two counts of super-aggravated sexual assault of a child.  Greg Kelley must also register as a sex offender upon his release. 

Late last night, after nearly 12 hours of deliberation, the Williamson County jury returns the guilty verdicts against Kelley.  He could have faced up to life in prison for each count. 

During closing statements yesterday afternoon, former Leander football star Greg Kelley's attorney, Patricia Cummings continued to try to convince the jury that a psychologist had testified that if parents and authority figures repeat allegations made by preschool children to the children, it increases the likelihood of the children making false statements. Williamson County prosecutor Sunday Austin implied to the jury few 4 year old children have sophisticated knowledge about any type of sex.
