Following Sunday’s tragic events in Texas, the Department of Defense (DoD) requested that the DoD Inspector General (IG) along with the Air Force, review the handling of criminal records in the case of former Airman Devin P. Kelley.

Kelley, found guilty by a general court martial on two charges of domestic assault against his wife and stepson under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, was sentenced to 12 months of confinement at the Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar in California. He was later released with a Bad Conduct Discharge and reduction in grade.

Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson and Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. David Goldfein along with the DoD IG will initiate an investigation to determine whether information about Kelley’s conviction was properly entered into the National Criminal Information Center database.  The DoD IG will also review relevant policies and procedures to ensure records from other cases across DoD have been reported correctly.
