The man told police he warned Kelly not to touch him because he would then have the right to defend himself, according to the affidavit. Kelly went into his apartment at this time, the affidavit says.
“Mr. Kelly then came back outside with a baseball bat and swung it at (the victim’s) head,” the affidavit says. “(The victim) put his arms up to shield his head, taking the hit to his left forearm. Mr. Kelly then went back inside his apartment and locked himself inside.”
Kelly was sentenced Oct. 21.
According to a court document outlining his sentence, Kelly could get some relief from his prison sentence. The court ordered that the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation & Correction may reduce his sentence and he could file for judicial release.
