Cape man sentenced on marijuana charges
Gregory I. Campbell, 39, of Cape Girardeau, was sentenced Tuesday to six years in prison for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. A Pemiscot County jury found him guilty Sept. 9, 2002, but acquitted him of other drug charges.
Police found a quarter-pound of marijuana hidden under Campbell's car seat in December 2001.
The case was moved from Cape Girardeau County on a change of venue. Circuit Judge Fred Copeland is allowing Campbell to delay reporting to the Pemiscot County Jail until Jan. 9 to be transported to prison.
Campbell still faces charges in Cape Girardeau County for first-degree burglary and second-degree domestic assault, stemming from a September arrest. A jury trial has been set for March 12 in that case.
