Who is Kelly Goodlett?

When Taylor’s March 13, 2020, police shooting began to gain national attention, Kelly Goodlett added a false line to the warrant, then conspired with another detective to make it up, federal investigators say A cover story.

Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was shot and killed by police who broke down while executing a drug warrant. Taylor’s boyfriend shot a police officer who walked through the door, and they fired back, hitting Taylor multiple times.

Goodlett, 35, appeared in federal court in Louisville on Tuesday afternoon and pleaded guilty to conspiring with another Louisville police officer to forge a warrant. Goodlet briefly answered several questions from Federal Judge Rebecca Jennings Grady.

Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, was in court on Tuesday but did not speak after the trial.

Earlier this month, a federal grand jury indicted three former Louisville police officers on criminal civil rights charges. Goodlett has not been charged, but he has been charged in federal information filings, which could mean the former detective is cooperating with investigators.

Goodlett will be sentenced on November 22. Grady said there could be “extenuating” circumstances that could cause the court to delay the sentencing date. Parts of the plea hearings were also kept under wraps and were not discussed in open court on Tuesday. She faces up to five years in prison.

She resigned from the Justice Department on Aug. 5, a day after U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced new federal charges in the Taylor case.
