Greg Kelley’s judge asks to be recused

GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) – The judge overseeing the ongoing case involving a Williamson County man convicted of super aggravated sexual assault of a child asked to be removed from the case in a letter Tuesday.

According to the attorney for Greg Kelley, judge Billy Ray Stubblefield asked for the recusal in a letter to Texas Supreme Court justice Nathan Hecht. A decision has not been made yet as to whether he will be removed from the case.

Kelley was sentenced to 25 years in prison following his conviction for sexually assaulting a young boy at an in home daycare. Since his conviction, there have been numerous protests on Kelley’s behalf and Kelley has hired attorney Keith Hampton in an effort to get a new trial on the charges.

Earlier this month, Hampton filed a motion seeking a new trial saying he could prove Kelley is innocent of the charges.
