Wynonna Judd, who is famously half of the well-known country music duo The Judds, was devasted to learn that her daughter, Grace Pauline Kelley will be spending the next eight years behind bars. On June 25, Radar Online Wynonna’s daughter with first husband Arch Kelley III — will be locked up at West Tennessee State Penitentiary because she broke probation stemming from several court cases involving methamphetamine.

In May 2017 she pleaded guilty to meth manufacture, delivery, sale, and possession with intent to distribute in Williamson County Court. She also pleaded guilty to meth possession which she was charged with in neighboring Maury County.

Once she was in court, and all the evidence was displayed an agreement was reached that she would be sentenced to serve 11 months and 29 days in jail. However, the judge gave her the option of a suspended sentence following a 30-day stint in jail which would be followed up with an extended probationary period.
