Jury: Man guilty of child sex crime - A 34-year-old Beaver Dam man accused of using the Internet to lure a teenage girl for sex has been found guilty.
The felony charges stem from a Dec. 28, 2007, incident involving a 14-year-old Waupun girl and carry a maximum sentence of 53 years in prison and an additional 33 years of extended supervision.
The Waupun teen told investigators she met Campbell through a chat room on the Internet and invited him to come to her Waupun home to watch TV in her bedroom while her mother was at work, according to the criminal complaint.
While Campbell was in the residence, the girl told police that he grabbed her in a sexual manner. The victim also testified that Campbell masturbated in front of her and touched her breast, according to the complaint.
Campbell told the court that he had only a spotty memory of the incident, a statement that Assistant District Attorney Kurt Klomberg called a “cop-out” and a way to avoid taking responsibility for his actions, Barrington said.
I’m thinking he will have a lot of time to remember…
