Wynonna Judd's daughter charged with indecent exposure and soliciting prostitution in Alabama

Grace Kelley, 27, allegedly "exposed her breasts and lower body" at an intersection.

The daughter of country star Wynonna Judd was arrested last week after she allegedly exposed herself at an Alabama intersection.

Grace Pauline Kelley, 27, 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.

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.

Representatives for Judd, the Millbrook Municipal Court, and the Elmore County Sheriff's Office didn't respond to Entertainment Weekly's request for further information.

The arrest is not Kelley’s first run-in with the law. She was arrested in 2016 for possession of meth and was later sentenced to eight years in prison after she violated her probation by leaving a court-ordered drug recovery program in 2018, according to PEOPLE. Kelley was granted a temporary leave of absence from jail to welcome her daughter in March 2022.

Kelley was released from jail in December 2022, but she was arrested in May 2023 after she violated an order of protection and a restraining order, as well as her parole, the Daily Beast reported. She was held at Tennessee’s Putnam County Jail and reportedly released in October.

Judd spoke out about her daughter's legal troubles in an interview with Fox Nation's The Pursuit With John Rich in 2020. "I'm no different than anyone else," the Grammy winner said. "I've got kids who have made great successful choices. I have just as much to say about the testimony — emphasis on the word 'test' — of both my children saying, 'Wow, that didn't work.' I will tell you this: My daughter is the strongest Judd woman in our herstory. She's healthier than I was at 23."

Judd added, "How she got there — I would not go that way. But I was also sequestered. I was on a bus with my mother. Kind of hard to get in trouble."
