Last winter I was a victim of Mr.Campbell's little spree. However, unlike these homes that were broken into I didn't receive any justice. According to the police "There wasn't enough evidence" (apparently finding the same clothing he was wearing on camera in his home and the items he had used were found in his house during the raid wasn't enough). Meanwhile, I sit here horrified that this man, for months after, was still walking around with the rest of society. You bet your bottom dollar that I will be there on October 4th to see this low life slime bag get what he deserves. Lets just hope it isn't just a slap on the wrist.

The maximum sentence for Break and Enter of a Dwelling House is LIFE IMPRISONMENT. The guys who set that up knew how devastating having your home violated is to a family.
Miles Campbell is a repeat offender, given his breach of probation charge, so I wonder what his sentence will be?
I think that we should all go down to the Court House on October 4th to see if the judge has the same opinion as we do.
