WYNONNA Judd’s troubled daughter Grace Pauline Kelley is back in jail for violating probation and is expected to serve eight years behind bars.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Grace, 24, was booked on April 30, 2020 for a probation violation.
The Tennessee county jail confirmed to The Sun that she has been sentenced to eight years behind bars with a release date of April 30, 2028.
The country singer’s daughter broke probation from her 2016 meth and evading arrest cases.
The new sentence comes after Grace, whose father is Arch Kelley, was released from prison five years early on November 8, 2019 after she was granted parole in her eight-year drug sentence.
She was assigned to Franklin Probation and Parole Office until September 22, 2024.
In February, The Sun revealed Grace’s parole mugshot, where she looked healthy and alert compared to her past images on drug-related arrests.
Grace began her previous eight-year sentence on March 5, 2017 after violating probation by absconding from a recovery court program.
In May 2017, she pleaded guilty to meth manufacture, delivery sale and possession with intent in Williamson County Court in Tennessee.
She was charged with manufacturing and delivery of meth charges in Maury County, and pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of possession of meth.
She was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail.
The sentence was suspended and to be served on probation after completing 30 days behind bars.
Her first drug arrest for meth manufacture was in December 2015.
Wynonna, 55, opened up about her daughter’s legal troubles for the first time since she was granted her early release.
She said on The Pursuit! with John Rich: “I will tell you this. My daughter is the strongest Judd woman in our ‘herstory.’
“She’s healthier than I was at 23. How she got there – I would not go that way, but I was also sequestered.”
She continued of growing up on a tour bus with her mom, Naomi Judd: “I was on a bus with my mother. Kind of hard to get in trouble. That could have been me if I didn’t have music.”
Wynonna and Grace have had a rocky relationship through the years.
In 2013, Wynonna’s actress sister Ashley Judd obtained temporary custody of Grace.
Wynonna is also mom to son Elijah.
