She revealed that she had taken into consideration the age of the child involved, the nature of the offence — Campbell admitting to sodomising the young child, and the fact that the offender did not waste the court’s time.However, she said she found Campbell to be unremorseful, and has thus handed him another term of life imprisonment. She has ordered that he spend 30 years in jail before he can be eligible for parole on this sentence.Attorney Lisa Cave appeared for the prosecution.Campbell was in January of this year acquitted of another rape charge after he was indicted on two counts of child sexual activity with a family member. On that occasion, the 12-member jury returned an 11-1 not guilty verdict on the first count after three hours of deliberation.The jury was, however, unable to reach a formal verdict on the second count, and the judge ordered another trial. The particulars of those charges had contended that the acts were penetrative in nature.Though he was freed of charges earlier this year, he was already serving a life imprisonment sentence, having been found guilty in 2017 for sodomising the five-year-old boy’s brother when that lad was seven and eight years of age respectively. These incidents occurred during the month of September 2011. The second sexual act with the same young boy took place on July 20, 2013, when the child was eight. For this offence, he was also ordered to serve 30 years before being eligible for parole.last_img read more
