GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) – A different judge will hear arguments whether a man convicted of super aggravated sexual assault of a child should get a new trial.

Friday, Texas Supreme Court Justice Nathan Hecht approved a request that allows Judge Billy Ray Stubblefield to recuse himself from Greg Kelley’s case. Harris County judge Michael McSpadden will takeover the case.

Kelley’s attorney, Keith Hampton, tells KXAN that McSpadden has until Sept. 29 to rule on a motion asking for a new trial.

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.
