James D. Campbell, a former Catholic priest in Warwick, R.I., who pleaded guilty to rape, on December 22, 2004 in Worcester Superior court case WOCR2003-01575 had his sentence of 90 days in the house of correction imposed today by Worcester Superior Court Judge Peter W Agnes Jr. Previously assistant district attorney Jeffrey T. Travers and Mr. Campbell’s lawyer James T. McCormick recommended a 90-day jail term. During the victim impact statement the victim also agreed to the sentencing.

Mr. Campbell admitted he took J.H. and another teenager to a restaurant in Uxbridge nearly 30 years ago and molested them on different occasions.

Rev Campbell while an ordained Catholic priest was never assigned to the Worcester Diocese, his only association to Worcester was the location of his crime.
