This was after a probation report was presented by Probation and Social Services Officer Medford Ward and a plea in mitigation was made by state appointed attorney Charrandass Persaud.Campbell was accused of the shooting death of his 20-year-old stepson, Travis Cleon Fraser, called “Black Boy”. The victim was shot to death some time between January 22 and January 23, 2004, while he was asleep in his Liverpool,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, Corentyne home.The probation report had stated that the accused had fathered 25 children and had a chequered past. He was never stable in his younger days, the report continued. It also stated that during the time of the incident the accused was living with two women and was a heavy drinker. He was one who was said to have lived a reckless life in his formative years.Campbell had told the Probation Officer that he was taken over by evil forces,Authentic Jerseys From China, which caused him to commit the act.In mitigation, attorney at law Persaud begged the court to be lenient with his client who he said is aged. “He has thrown himself to the mercies of this court” the attorney pleaded and stated that his client did not waste the court’s time and was very remorseful for what had happened.“My client did not have much of a violent background your honour,” Persaud continued.In continuing his mitigation plea, the attorney asked the court to take into consideration Campbell’s age and that he had been incarcerated for almost six years.Before passing sentence, Justice Reynolds told the accused that it seemed that he lived a cavalier lifestyle during his younger days and did not take much into consideration. The judge also told him from his own admission he fathered 25 children, and he (Justice Reynolds) wondered what example he was setting for his offspring.The judge then said that after taking everything into consideration the accused would serve six years in jail.Attorney at law Dionne Mc Cammon appeared for the state.Campbell was previously tried and found guilty of the capital offence and sentenced to death, on March 3, 2008. He however appealed his conviction and won a retrial in the Appellate Court.Another trial was underway a few weeks ago and this had to be aborted after a juror had failed to disclose that he was before the magistrate’s court on an indictable matter of unlawful assault. It was also learnt that defence attorney in the murder trial, Charrandass Persaud, was representing the juror in the ongoing assault matter in the Magistrate’s court.(Samuel Whyte)
