Former Minneapolis officer found guilty of sexual assault of 16-year-old girl

Former Minneapolis Police Officer David Campbell was found guilty Wednesday after sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in February 2017.

A Hennepin County District Court Judge found Campbell, 60, guilty on several counts of criminal sexual conduct.

According to the criminal complaint, a Bloomington Police detective met with the 16-year-old last fall. She said she was the girlfriend of Campbell’s son and been living with the family.

In February, Campbell purchased the girl underwear and told her to use his phone to take pictures of herself wearing them. Later, Campbell started sexually assaulting her, including when he was on duty in his squad car.

Campbell told the girl if she reported what was happening that he’d shoot her in the head.

His charges include five counts of criminal sexual conduct, one count of terroristic threats and one count of stalking. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 3. The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office announced it will argue for a 57-month sentence.
