24-Year-Old Kane Kellett of Crystal Lake, Illinois is in a foul mood, or at least his actions in court this weekend certainly make it look that way.
Kellett was arrested and charged with home invasion and according to the County State’s Attorney he was not happy when they brought him out of lockup in front of the judge. When the judge asked him if he had an attorney Kellett’s answer was “Fuck, no”. Not a particularly good answer for the guy that keeps your ass in jail there Kane. The judge magnanimously proceeded to overlook the transgression and told Kellett to raise his right hand to be sworn. What does Kellett do?
He raises his right hand, middle finger extended, flipping off Judge G. Martin Zopp. Kellett’s ‘good’ mood has now earned him a six-month stay in the county jail for contempt of court. I guess since he was on McHenry County’s Ten Most Wanted list for a while he isn’t such a nice guy anyway.
Unless you are some kind of frigging murderer or child molester with no chances of getting out of jail anytime soon, chances are you need to be polite to the judge, a lesson that hopefully Kane Kellett will have learned before his next court appearance.
Kellett’s last status update on his MySpace page says he’s “money hungry”. His last login was Friday night October 30th. I’m assuming this was shortly before his hunger for money got his sorry ass locked up.

So, I could have done a little more research when I posted this in 2009. Back in 2004, six people were arrested for a street brawl involving baseball bats and knives. Kane Kellett, 19 at the time, was one of them. He was charged with two counts of mob action, unlawful use of a weapon and aggravated assault. I do not know if he did any time for this.
In March of 2010, after he did six month’s time for giving the judge the bird, Kane Kellett got a few more years added to his time. He was sentenced to six years in prison as part of a plea deal where he admitted guilt to home invasion but was not charged with the assault. He also had to pay $1750 in restitution.
He received day for day credit while serving the sentence which gave him the potential to be paroled by 2013.
And that brings us to 2019…Kane Kallett pleaded guilty to a felony count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance on December 5th. Kellett was sentenced to seven years in prison for drug charges which were related to a fatal fentanyl overdose. Kellett, along with two defendants, 41-year-old Melissa Ohlson and 34-year-old Jeffrey Hauck (Facebook profile), were accused of delivering heroin laced with fentanyl to a 32-year-old woman from Crystal Lake that died of an overdose on March 6, 2019
All three defendants were initially charged with drug-induced homicide but the charges against Kellett were dismissed when he pleaded to the lesser charge (see a pattern here?)
Hauck was convicted of drug-induced homicide on November 20th, 2019 and sentenced to nine years in prison. The case against Ohlson was set to be in court on Jan 21, 2020.
According to the Illinois Department of Corrections, Kane Kellett is eligible for a parole date of 7/21/2023 and a projected release date (without parole) in 2026. His various sentences that he has served time for since 2005 include:
- 2005 – Mob Action
- 2005 – Possession of a Controlled Substance
- 2006 – Mob Action
- 2007 – Possession of a Controlled Substance
- 2008 – Communicating or Detaining a Witness
- 2009 – Home Invasion
- 2019 – Delivery of Meth (Cook County) & Other Amount Schedule I & II Narcotics (McHenry County)
Melissa Ohlson (Facebook) is not currently listed as an inmate of the Illinois Department of Corrections, Jeffrey Hauck is however. His info is below. Doesn’t have a lot of updates on Facebook (profile linked above). I guess he’s not out of jail enough to make a bunch of posts. Seems like he and Kellett have the same sort of record…
Hauck has served time for the following:
- 2008 – Possession of a Controlled Substance
- 2008 – Burglary
- 2008 – Misuse of a Credit Card > $300
- 2010 – Burglary
- 2012 – Theft
- 2016 – Criminal Damage of Government Property
- 2019 – Drug-Induced Homicide.
