Ex-Minneapolis cop guilty of sexually assaulting son's 16-year-old girlfriend

The assaults happened in Twin Cities hotels and even in his squad car.

A former police officer with Minneapolis PD is facing almost 5 years in prison after being found guilty of sexually assaulting his son's girlfriend.

David Campbell, 60, was convicted of several counts of criminal sexual conduct and will be sentenced on Dec. 3 to anything between 36 and 57 months in prison, though the Hennepin County Attorney's Office will argue for the maximum.

It follows a series of sexual assaults Campbell committed on the 16-year-old girlfriend of his son, including times when he was on duty and she was in his squad car with him.

He also assaulted her at hotels in Bloomington, Roseville and Minneapolis, which his family had been living out of.

The trial heard that Campbell started buying the victim underwear and bras from Victoria's Secret in February 2017, later telling her to use his phone to take pictures of herself wearing them.

The sexual assaults then began, with Campbell warning her he would lose his children if she told anyone, and also threatened to shoot her in the head.

Police first learned of the abuse when she and Campbell's son spoke with a detective in Bloomington last fall.

Campbell was found guilty of three counts of 3rd degree and two counts of 4th degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of terroristic threats and one count of stalking.
