Grace Pauline Kelley, the 22-year-old daughter of the 54-year-old singer Wynonna Judd, has been arrested and sentenced to eight years in prison.


According to Radar Online, Kelley was arrested last November, though she was granted parole on the stipulation that she attend a drug rehab program. She absconded from the court-ordered program, violating the terms of her probation and therefore sentencing her to eight years in prison.

She is currently serving her sentence at the West Tennessee State Penitentiary. Aug. 25, 2025 is her slated day of release, but she will be eligible for parole on Feb. 4, 2019.

On May 27, 2017, Kelly pled guilty to accounts of “meth manufacture, delivery, sale and possession with intent” at the Williamson County courthouse. She accumulated $3,092.50 worth in fines for her crimes, with her current balance due listed as $3,273.50. She also confessed to meth possession instead of the greater charges incurred by manufacturing and distributing the drug in Maury County.

Kelley was initially given a term of 11 months and 29 days in jail, but it was suspended. After 30 days in prison, the troubled youth was instead released on probation with the mandatory 180 rehab program.

2017 wasn’t the only year Kelley dabbled in dealing drugs; she was charged for and pled guilty to meth possession in 2016, and was arrested in both 2015 and 2016 for other crimes.
