Country star Wynonna Judd’s daughter, Grace Pauline Kelley, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for violating the terms of her probation on a drug conviction.

RadarOnline reports that the 22-year-old had pleaded guilty in May 2017 to the manufacture, delivery, sale and possession of meth. The judge ordered Kelley to pay more than $3,000 in fines and sentenced her to a year in jail at the Williamson County Detention Center in Tennessee.

However, her sentence was suspended after just 30 days, provided that Kelley continued a court-ordered drug program. She broke the probation in November 2017.

“Her probation was revoked on February 8, 2018,” a Williamson County spokesperson told RadarOnline. “She was sentenced to serve eight years. The meth manufacture, delivery, sale and possession with intent charges run concurrent with charges at Maury County.”

Despite a sentence that would have her in jail until 2025, Kelley may be eligible for parole in 2019.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
