Campbells Convicted, Bail Bondsman in the Case Not Convicted
Jay Campbell, the former Lonoke chief of police and his wife, Kelly Campbell were convicted for a combined total of 50 charges in Lonoke County. Following a high-profile trial that had many questioning the way the bond and bail industry works, the Campbells were found guilty by a jury. Charges against the couple include conspiracy, theft of services, manufacture of methamphetamine, and other charges.
