Okaloosa County School District’s program director for the Office of Community Affairs, Henry Kelley, broke state law when he released documents exempt from public scrutiny to a television reporter, a private investigator has found.
Investigator Matthew Pellegrino reported that Kelley violated two Florida statutes pertaining to the release of public records on Oct. 18 when he provided WEAR TV’s Christopher Saul with documentation pertaining to a formal complaint lodged against Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Stacie Smith.
The complaint had been filed by county resident Gene Earley, who called for disciplinary action against Kelley after Saul contacted him seeking comment on the Smith investigation.
