Sheriff LeRoy Upshaw announced the arrest of Eric Ryan Campbell, 22 of 490 Co. Rd. 23 Clio, AL 36017 on March 12, 2014 on charges of Rape 1st Degree and Sodomy 1st Degree. Campbell is charged with have sexual intercourse and deviant sexual intercourse with a child. The alleged incidents occurred at the child's residence in south Barbour County. Sheriff Upshaw said the investigation was conducted and the arrest were made by his investigator, Lt. David Morris. Campbell was transported to the Barbour County Jail and is being held under a $250,000 bond.
Sheriff Upshaw further stated that the child was abused by more than one person and that Lt. Morris has already completed the investigation on the second suspect and a warrant has been signed against him. Lt. Morris said he has left the state, but we have a pretty good idea where he is hiding.
A third person is being investigated at this time, and an arrest will be forthcoming once that investigation is completed. Upshaw said that the child had been allegedly raped multiple times by this suspect, therefore the investigation is taking longer. We just want to make sure that the suspect is charged with each time he touched the child.
