Campbell has tested positive for HIV.

Following deliberation, a Dallas County jury found him guilty of harassment of a public servant following a 2006 incident.

In 2006, Campbell spit in the face of Dallas Officer Dan Waller. This is not the first time Campbell has done this either. The ruling stands that since he is HIV positive, that puts him as a true danger.

The Dallas County jury stated that his spit, since he was HIV positive, was a deadly weapon, resulting in the 35-year jail sentence.
