Greensburg man sentenced in crash death involving Ohio official

first_imgVersailles, In. — Greensburg resident Richard Campos, 41, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for his role in a drunk driving crash that killed Hubert Brown, 65, of Harrison, Ohio.Court documents say Campos had a blood alcohol level of .289 when he struck the rear of a tractor Brown was driving on State Road 350 near Delaware. Investigators say Campos at over 80-miles-per-hour when the collision occurred.At the sentencing hearing, Ripley County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Shane Tucker argued that there were numerous factors that warranted a maximum sentence of 32 years.  He argued Campos’ significant criminal history, including convictions for two prior OWI’s, amongst many other felony and misdemeanor convictions, the egregious nature of this crime with such a high rate of speed and alcohol level, the age of the victim, and Campos’ history of probation violations should result in the maximum sentence. Campos’ defense counsel, John Kellerman, argued that Campos’ remorse for his actions and his plea of guilty should be taken into consideration.  After hearing the evidence and argument of the parties, the Court agreed with the State’s argument, also citing the substantial impact this crime had on the victim’s family, and sentenced Campos to 12 years on the OWI Causing Death and an additional 18 years on the Habitual Offender Enhancement for an aggregate sentence of 30 years.Shane Tucker said, “While no sentence will ever bring Mr. Brown back to his family, I believe justice was served in this case.  The Defendant’s senseless and selfish decisions led to the death of a husband, father, and friend and that should warrant an aggravated sentence.” Tucker also wanted to complement the Indiana State Police for their thorough and complete investigation.For at least 20 years Brown served as the Whitewater Township trustee.last_img read more

Wenger picks three decisions VAR could have changed for Arsenal

first_imgArsene Wenger has revealed three key moments in Arsenal’s history which he feels could have been different had the use of Video Assistant Referees been in place.The use of VARs has caused much debate in recent days, after being trialled in England’s friendly defeat at France and then in the Confederations Cup in Russia.It has already seen big decisions overturned during matches, but those calls remain a talking point amongst fans and between pundits during post-match analysis.The system has already been used five times at the tournament – four of them relating to offside calls and one for a handball in the run up to a goal – and FIFA says it is ‘the future of football’.Wenger was discussing the topic with Arsenal Player and he does not know why it has taken so long for football to implement technology in the modern game.He was asked to pick three moments that could have changed the outcome of a match. Wenger says a trophy is still missing from the north Londoners’ trophy cabinet and it could have been much different with the use of VAR.See what he picked below…1. Barcelona 2-1 Arsenal, 2006 Champions League finalAW: “I would choose Barcelona’s equaliser in the 2006 Champions League final because it was offside, and we were 1-0 up with 30 minutes to go.“That’s the trophy I miss here, you know, so that is for me the most important one.” Arsene Wenger: The Arsenal boss reflects on past decisions 2. Barcelona 3-1 Arsenal (4-3 agg), 2010/11 Champions League round of 16AW: “The second yellow card for Robin van Persie at Barcelona, because this was the moment we were qualified against a very strong team, and it was a very difficult decision to accept – it basically killed our chances.” 3. Arsenal 1-5 Bayern Munich (2-10 agg), 2016/17 Champions League round of 16“After that maybe I go to a more recent decision – against Bayern Munich when Laurent Koscielny was sent off for a penalty when Lewandowski was offside.“That just comes to my mind now but maybe I forget many, many, many, many more.” 4center_img 4 4 4last_img read more
