Man With 15 DWI’s Faces Prison Time – but not enough!!

July 1, 2009

New Jersey (ChattahBox) – A man has been arrested after his 15th DWI, after admitting that his blood alcohol level had been three times over the limit when he crashed his car into the vehicle of a man and his four-year-old daughter.

Shaun P. Campbell, a 40-year-old man who has had his license revoked 75 times, had been drinking heavily the night he crashed his car into that of Harold A. Bivins Jr., and his daughter Hannah. They were luckily not seriously injured, but with so many DWI’s behind Campbell, the court is being asked to recognize the fact that Campbell has shown no real remorse, has continued to put others at risk, and could kill the passengers in the other vehicle next time.

The prosecution is asking that Campbell serve the maximum 18-month sentence, plus consecutive 180-day sentences for all related driving charges, and an addition 90-day sentence for repeat offenses. In all, it could equal up to more than 9 years.

He also faces $3,000 in fines, costs in the damages of the Bivins’ vehicle, and a ten year suspended license, though he did not have a valid license at the time of his most recent arrest.

Campbell has said he will be seeking a lighter sentence in court.

    Campbell committed attempted negligent homocide, and successfully committed negligent assault with a deadly weapon. He should be charged with attempted 3rd-degree murder and locked up for life in a medium-security facility, without parole.
