Jake Brydon on Greg Kelley’s case
Greg Kelley is from Texas high school and used to play football. He was arrested, charged, and sentenced for being convicted as a child molester. A new documentary series Outcry debuted on 5th July 2020. It follows the story of Greg Kelley.
In the year 2013, Kelley was accused of aggravated sexual assault of a 4-year-old boy at a daycare in Leander, Texas. He was sentenced to 25 years in state prison without parole in 2014.
But after three years, a judge released him on bond in the year 2017. Jake first found Greg back in 2014.
“I saw my old coach on the news. I know him to be a man of great character and he was always our lead teacher in high school and taught a leadership class and I was like, why is he onscreen crying for a convicted pedophile?”
After that, Brydon reached out to his former coach who said that Kelley was innocent. Knowing about the case, Jake felt something was not right, so he hired a private investigator who found out that Greg had injustice in his case.
Likewise, after being released from prison, Greg’s conviction was overturned. They started meeting each other and Jake has supported him. Jake also officiated the wedding of Greg and his high school sweetheart Gaebri Anderson in the year 2019.
Jake had never met Kelley before he found out about the case. But he has shown full dedication to fighting for his case.
