WilCo Sex Assault Case Moves Forward

Updated: Thursday, July 3 2014, 08:33 AM CDT

There were outbursts in the courtroom as both sides debate who is the actual outcry witness in the criminal case against Gregory Kelley.

The assistant district attorney lost his cool in court.  His vocal comments were in response to the defense attorney's continued claims it was actually one of the victim's father -- not mother -- who spoke to their child first.  It's a claim the father denied in court.

"That would be incorrect," he said.

But statements made by the mother to a Department of Family and Protective Services investigator said otherwise. 

"Couldn't wait would've been an actual phrase she said," recalled Heather Bradley.

An important fact since it is the outcry witness's testimony that will be submitted into evidence during the criminal trial.

Kelley is accused of sexually abusing two boys at an in-house day care he was living in at the time.  Kelley showed no emotion during Wednesday's testimony.  His mother looked on from the as she clenched a rosary which she said gives her strength. 

A licensed professional counselor who is treating both victims claimed the children would be better off testifying during the criminal trial via closed circuit television.

"They both say they are fearful of having to come here and talk about it again and even the possibility of seeing Greg scares them."

Jury selection is set to begin on Monday.
