The Rev. Michael Kelly, a former Lockeford priest, faces up to 14 years in prison if he’s convicted of the charges included in a Calaveras County criminal grand jury indictment presented Monday to Superior Court Judge John E. Martin. The indictment includes three counts of lewd and lascivious conduct on a child and one count of oral copulation with a child.

These are the first criminal charges against Kelly, a longtime Stockton Diocese priest who returned to his native Ireland in April 2012 after he was found liable in a civil lawsuit of sexually abusing Travis Trotter. The diocese settled that lawsuit with the largest single award in diocesan history — $3.75 million.
