Kelly spoke out for alcohol lawKelly is a civil and criminal defense attorney who has defended people charged with DUI. According to a database of Oklahoma court records, Kelly has multiple speeding tickets over the past 15 years, but has no criminal record and no arrests for driving under the influence. Johnson said Kelly should know better, as an attorney. "Hopefully he can get this behind him without affecting his work,” Johnson said. "It’s sad for this to happen to anybody, especially Skip Kelly.” Kelly was a leading voice earlier this month as the council passed a social host law, which punishes adults who host parties where minors are served alcohol. Kelly chastised state lawmakers for failing to pass a similar law. "It’s a shame that our state Legislature, Republican and Democrats, can not see the clear message out there that these children are getting involved in drinking at an early age and much of it is being provided in the homes by the parents introducing them to alcoholic beverages,” Kelly said at an April 1 council meeting. "Ultimately, somebody is going to get killed.”
