Following the guilty verdict, the presiding judge, Justice Ann-Marie Smith, ordered Campbell to be remanded in His Majesty’s Prison for sentencing at a later date.
Campbell, who was represented by defence attorney Wendel Robinson, was accused of assaulting his 15-year-old victim after took her to Cassada Gardens where he kissed her on the lips, performed oral sex on her and forced her to perform oral sex on him.
The assault occurred on 16th December, 2018.
At the conclusion of the week-long trial, the jury arrived at a unanimous verdict after deliberating for approximately two and a half hours.
