CADIZ – Former Harrison County Treasurer George Campbell leaves a courtroom after being sentenced on Nov. 4 for fourth-degree felony theft. He pleaded no contest to a reduced charge in September and received 30 days in the county jail and 60 days’ house arrest, both with work release, as well as five year’s community-based controls with two years of intensive probation, 80 hours’ community service, a $1,500 court fine and treatment for alcohol, drugs and/or gambling addiction.

More than $32,800 in restitution was to be repaid within 60 days and Campbell reported to the county jail on Nov. 11 to begin serving his sentence. Details of the sentencing can be found in this weeks print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
