LEANDER (KVUE) -- About 200 supporters of Greg Kelley showed up in force Thursday night a rally to show their support for the former Leander High School football player.
Kelley was convicted Tuesday of two counts of super aggravated sexual assault, and on Wednesday his defense team rallied prosecutors for a plea deal.
Williamson County Assistant District Attorney Mark Brunner told KVUE that Kelley's defense team approached prosecutors with a plea deal: If Kelley was given 25 years he would waive his right at an appeal.
Brunner also told KVUE before the trial prosecutors offered Kelley a plea deal which included probation for 10 years and six months in the county jail. Kelley refused the offer.
On Thursday at least 200 of Kelley's friends and family members showed up to Leander High School for a support rally.
"I don't want sympathy, I want justice," said Greg Kelley's mother. Kelley's mother claims her son's case would not have made it to trial in Travis County. "Shame on Williamson County," she added.
