TYLER, Texas (AP) - An East Texan accused of helping run swinger
parties that forced children to have sex took the stand today -- to
deny the charges.
Patrick "Booger Red" Kelly also told a jury in Tyler that the
children are lying.
Kelly is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and
engaging in organized criminal activity. If convicted, he could get
life in priosn.
Last week an 11-year-old girl testified about taking "silly
pills" and playing "doctor" with her younger brother at the
so-called Mineola Swinger's Club.
Kelly denied knowledge of such pills, making children do any
kind of sexual dancing or touching them inappropriately.
The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports Kelly says he's never been
to the Mineola Swinger's Club.
Kelly's wife, Rose, testified that she and her husband have
never done anything to harm any children.
