Thursday, Cedar Park City Council will meet in a closed-door session to discuss how Cedar Park Police investigated sexual assault claims against Greg Kelley in 2013.

This comes after a 3-day hearing last week where Cedar Park officers testified, revealing how they handled the case.

Kelley is serving a 25 year sentence for the sexual assault of a minor at an in-home daycare; he was convicted in 2014.

Officer Kevin Freed admitted in last week's testimony that he did not record the 4-year-old victim's father's initial statements.

Sgt. Christopher Dailey also took the stand, saying he never went to the scene of the crime, interviewed other adults in the home, or followed up on certain leads. Dailey also admitted to deleting a series of emails with CPS over the case.

Kelley's lawyers also interviewed a Texas Ranger who stated there are three suspects in the case, but because of a lack of investigation by Cedar Park Police, he could not come to a conclusion.

The District Attorney publicly apologized to Kelley's supporters in court, claiming "we failed in our investigation and the initial prosecution of the case."

Kelley's lawyers and the prosecution will meet with a judge August 18th.

Cedar Park City Council will meet at 6 PM Thursday evening.
