Britney Sheppard Campbell of South Carolina got 25 years in federal prison for creating and distributing intimate acts with a minor and elderly person

Britney Sheppard Campbell gets 25 years in federal prison

The 36-year-old Britney Sheppard Campbell was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to the production of child sex abuse materials. These incidents, per the Department of Justice, were taking place for an extended period of time from early 2014 to 2016. Court documents indicate that the South Carolina woman had agreed to create child sex abuse materials after her boyfriend requested that she do so.

During this period, Campbell was taking care of an elderly Alzheimer’s patient, but she was also babysitting an infant. On behalf of her boyfriend, she performed sexual acts on an infant, filmed the acts, and provided the images to her boyfriend. The same happened with the elderly Alzheimer’s patient who she was taking care of at the time.

This case first caught the authorities’ attention when they learned that Campbell’s boyfriend was allegedly receiving and transferring some of these materials. The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant in his home, seized his personal computer, and discovered the materials. Campbell was on those materials and was seen with at least one of the victims.

Campbell’s boyfriend died before the investigation was complete

When questioned by investigators, Campbell admitted to producing those materials on behalf of her boyfriend and later giving them to him. Campbell’s boyfriend, whose identity was not disclosed by the Department of Justice District of South Carolina, died before the investigation was complete.
