  Email   Print

A man by the name of Marty Joe Kelly appealed his child sexual abuse court case from Rutherford County in the court of criminal appeals in Nashville.  A Rutherford County Jury convicted him of six counts of rape of a child, three counts of aggravated sexual battery, nine counts of rape without consent, twenty-five counts of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor, and one count of sexual exploitation of a minor.


According to the courts, “the State improperly elected facts for Count Five. Consequently, Appellant’s conviction in Count Five for rape of a child is reversed and remanded for a new trial. Appellant’s remaining sentences for rape of a child in Counts One, Two, Three, Four, and Six, are hereby modified to twenty years. Additionally, the trial court should enter a corrected judgment in Count Fifty and Fifty-eight to reflect Appellant’s conviction as soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor.”
