Aldous Says Jail Time Required Criminal Trial
Charla Aldous, the attorney who represented Jane Doe and her family in the civil trial against ESD, said it’s a “complete lie” that the Does didn’t want Nathan Campbell to serve jail time.
“The only way for that to happen was to try the case, and Jane did not want to have to go through another trial,” Aldous said.
District attorney Tammy Kemp reached a plea deal with Nathan Campbell and his attorney, Mark Nancarrow on Monday. The deal gave Campbell 10 years “community supervision” as deferred adjudication. Nancarrow said in a previous interview that he didn’t believe the family wanted Campbell to go to jail.
While the family’s wishes were given some consideration, ultimately the decision belonged to the State of Texas, Aldous said.
