Hadley is divorcing Bradley Palmer, a wealthy financier. Divorce records show that he became suspicious of his wife and filed an application back in July to have access to her social networks accounts. This leads to speculation about his involvement in his wife’s arrest. 

The Associated Press (AP), argued the records could have redacted, or changed, the names of children, as is the case in state sex crime cases. This would make the documents more accessible to the public. 

It is unclear what Palmer did to the minors. Judge John Blawie ruled that the entire file should remain sealed to protect victims’ identities. He also ruled that it would be impossible to open the file without redacting certain documents. This would lead to identification of minor victims, of which one was at least fifteen years old.

“Between 2017-2018, the defendant knowingly photographed and filmed certain individuals without their consent and in circumstances where those individuals weren’t in plain sight and had a reasonable expectation to privacy and at least one photograph taken and captioned by the defendant depicted someone who was minor,” he wrote.

After Hadley was arrested on October 31st. She applied for an “accelerated rehabilitation” special probation program. The file was immediately sealed.

It is reserved for first-time criminals. It is only available to defendants with Class C felonies.
