State District Judge Donna King granted Kelley a $50,000 bond after she determined that his due process rights were violated during the 2014 investigation by the Cedar Park Police Department. The decision was made weeks after a three-day hearing that took place in the first week of August.

In 2014, Kelley, now 22, was convicted in the sexual assault case which led to his 25-year prison sentence.
Earlier this year, Williamson County authorities reopened his case and identified Johnathan McCarty -- Kelley's best friend at the time of the alleged assault -- as one of three suspects. On June 6, Kelley was returned to Williamson County Jail from the Wynne Unit in Huntsville, Texas.
