Cape man sentenced on marijuana charges

Wednesday, December 18, 2002

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.
