Wynonna Judd's Daughter Grace Charged With Soliciting Prostitution

Wynonna Judd’s daughter, Grace Kelley, is facing a new charge following her arrest in Alabama. The singer’s 27-year-old daughter was taken into custody in Alabama on April 5.

Grace Pauline Kelley was booked into Elmore County Jail at 5:05 p.m. on April 5 and charged with indecent exposure and obstructing governmental operations, according to online county jail records. A week later, a charge of soliciting prostitution had been added, and Kelley’s bond had been doubled, to $2,000.

She was initially booked on two charges: indecent exposure and obstructing governmental operations. Both charges are misdemeanors, but now she faces the third charge of soliciting prostitution.

Kelley, who is the daughter of Judd and ex-husband Arch Kelley III and the granddaughter of the late Naomi Judd, was taken into custody after she allegedly “exposed her breasts and lower body” at the intersection between Interstate 65 and Highway 14 in Millbrook and refused to identify herself to officers, per court documents obtained by local news outlets AL.com and WSFA 12.

Kelley has had several legal problems in the past. In 2016, she was arrested for possession of meth, per The Sun. She was convicted to serve 30 days in jail and then attend a court-mandated drug recovery program. However, she left the program before completion and was sentenced to serve eight years at the West Tennessee State Penitentiary.

She was granted parole and released in November 2019 but was arrested again in August 2021 for a probation violation, according to The Sun. She was released in December 2022 and then arrested again in May 2023 for violating an order of protection and her parole. Kelley was released from prison in October 2023.

In March 2022, Kelley gave birth to her daughter, Kaliyah Chanel, while on a leave of absence from jail, and Wynonna, 59, has subsequently been taking care of her granddaughter.

In October 2022, Wynonna, in an interview, revealed that her infant granddaughter had been helping her cope with the loss and loneliness she felt after the tragic death of her mother, Naomi Judd.
