AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s been a whirlwind two days for Greg Kelley, who proposed to his girlfriend Tuesday, a day after a Williamson County judge ruled his conviction should be thrown out.
Kelley was convicted in 2014 and sent to prison on charges he sexually assaulted a 4-year-old boy. Kelley has been out on bond since August when Williamson County District Attorney Shawn Dick reopened the case.
In a Facebook Live from the GRK Foundation’s page at 6:42 p.m., Kelley is seen getting down on one knee and proposing to his girlfriend, Gaebri Anderson, on the beach as friends cheer them on.
Earlier Tuesday, the same Facebook page posted a video of Kelley, with Anderson at his side, thanking Judge Donna King for “standing by me” and District Attorney Dick for being a man of “integrity and honor.”
However, King doesn’t have the final say in the case — her recommendation will be handed to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, which will make the final decision.
Kelley’s attorney Keith Hampton said his client’s only bond condition is that he shows up to court, allowing him to leave the country. It could take the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals months, even up to a year, to come to a decision.
