The one week Baker County Superior Court trials for the July 2018 term consisted of approximately 22 criminal cases. One case of significant note was the case of David Franklin Campbell. Mr. Campbell was charged with one count of Incest, Rape, Aggravated Child Molestation, Child Molestation and Cruelty to Children in the First Degree. With the assistance of Baker County Sheriff Office Investigator Charles Griffin, evidence proved on August 20, 2016 David Campbell unlawfully engaged in sexual intercourse with the accused’s daughter. On or about the 30th day of January 2016, Mr. Campbell did commit an immoral and indecent act to his biological daughter, involving the mouth of the accused and sexual organs of the child, with the intent to arouse and satisfy the sexual desires of himself by placing his lips on the victim’s vagina. The three day impaneled jury trial was tried by District Attorney Joseph K. Mulholland. The jury found Mr. Campbell guilty of rape, incest, aggravated child molestation, child molestation, and reckless conduct. He was sentenced to 25 years to serve in the state prison system by Judge Heather Lanier. Mulholland had this to say: “This poor child was living a nightmare. She has been relocated to a Christian Home and hopefully will be able to start a new life. Her perpetrator will spend the rest of his natural life likely behind bars.”
The second impaneled jury trial was a Felony Murder and Aggravated Assault case also tried by District Attorney Joseph K. Mulholland. With the assistance of Baker County Sheriff Office Investigator Charles Griffin and GBI Agent Rod Porter, evidence showed on April 1, 2017 Antonio Demond Walters caused the death of Marvin Mikel Miller, Jr. by shooting him with a handgun. The two day impaneled jury found Antonio Demond Walters guilty on all counts and was sentenced to 20 years to serve in the state prison system by Judge Heather Lanier. District Attorney said “There are far too many young people killed today over arguments that are trivial. I hope that Mr. Miller has some closure knowing the killer of his son was held responsible.”
