Back in 2016, Kelly did something similar. He appeared as a character witness for a former Marine colonel charged with sexually harassing a female subordinate. The colonel even went so far as to ask the woman to destroy evidence of their communications and was also charged with driving drunk to his own arraignment hearing.
