Richard J. Campbell II

CARMI, Ill. — Carmi lawmen have been busy the past several days with Police Chief Jason Carter’s latest report highlighting events from Friday, May 31 to Monday, June 3 beginning with the apprehension of a convicted child pornographer.

Chief Carter’s report begins May 31, at 9:37 a.m. when local lawmen responded to a report of a single vehicle accident at 413 North First St., Carmi.

Upon arrival, officers noted that a vehicle had struck a tree and a red-headed individual, later determined to be the operator of the vehicle when it struck said tree, was still seated in the driver’s seat behind the air bags, which deployed as a result of the sudden introduction of the front end of the vehicle to the tree.

‘Red’ was identified as 24-year-old Richard J. Campbell II, of Marion.

Junior’s license indicated that he resides at 709 North Garfield St., in Marion, and is a white male, 5’2”, 130 lbs., with green eyes.

Lawmen noted that Mr. Campbell was emanating a strong odor and admitted that he was ‘under the influence.’

Campbell was transported from the scene to Hamilton Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

Upon his release he was placed under arrest, charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Failure to Reduce Speed to Avoid an Accident and transported to the city/county jail.

There was no indication in the report as to the status of the two individuals who were passengers in Campbell’s vehicle. 

Campbell was released from police custody later that same day after he posted a $300 cash bond.

How long that release actually lasted is unclear because Williamson County court records indicate that Campbell was sentenced May 30, 2019, the day before his Carmi arrest, to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections in a case in which he was charged with two counts of Reproduction of Child Pornography/ Victim Under the Age of 13 and two counts of Possession of Child Pornography/ Moving Depiction . 

He was also ordered in that case to pay $1,780 in fines and fees, of which he has paid nothing.

His criminal history, as is the felon he is named after, contains several felony arrests including one from November 18, 2013 during which he was charged with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse of a Victim Under 18 Years of Age/ Family Member.

That charge was later dismissed.

Campbell is the guy who was alleged to have been riding around with juveniles in a report that came out of White County last week.

Whether he will face charges in that incident, since Campbell isn't to be around juveniles let alone taking them for rides about town, remains to be seen.

How Campbell hooked up with said juveniles in Carmi all the way from Marion also remains unknown, but a good guess would be online through social networking of some sort, a possible infraction of any of Campbell's sentencings/punishment, which all too often goes unnoticed by prosecutors.

Nicholas A. Jennings

Drunk driver turns himself in

That afternoon, Friday, May 31, a Carmi man turned himself into authorities.

Details filed in the case indicate that at 3:31 p.m. Nicholas A. Jennings, 34 of the 800 block of North Seventh St., Carmi, walked into the lobby of the city police department and turned himself in on an active warrant out of White County for Failure to Appear for a scheduled court date.

Jennings’ criminal history includes an arrest July 31, 2014 during which he was charged with Maintaining a Place for Illegal Drug Activity and Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. 

He was convicted December 18, 2014 on that charge and sentenced to court supervision for two years, ordered to undergo treatment and to attend a special facility [also known as some kind of rehab] and ordered to pay $3,186 in fines and fees, of which he still owes $1,586.

In that same case a single count of Domestic Battery Causing Bodily Harm was dismissed.

In August of 2018 Jennings was convicted of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Domestic Battery Causing Bodily Harm and sentenced to conditional discharge for two years, to attend alcohol treatment and to pay $3,700 in fines and fees of which he still owes $3,623.

In his most recent case, Jennings was released from police custody later that same day after posting a $500 cash bond.

The next day, Saturday, June 1, Jennifer L. Adcock, 36, of the 300 block of West Robinson St., Carmi, was taken into custody at 8:38 a.m. and charged with Driving While License Suspended.

The two other folks in the vehicle with her when she was stopped were not detained.

No stranger to taking her meals behind bars, Ms. Adcock was arrested December 15, 2017 and charged with Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Convicted in January 2018 on the gun and drug charges, she was sentenced to the Illinois Department of Corrections for two years and ordered to pay $487 in fines and fees, of which she has only paid $50.

In her latest case, Ms. Adcock was released from police custody that same day after posting $150 cash bond.
