Tallahassee, FL—Anyone in their right mind should know that it is immoral, unethical and EXTREMELY SINISTER for State Attorney Willie Meggs to have assigned Jack Campbell to prosecute criminal cases that his dad, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, an elected official, was the leading investigating agency. State Attorney Willie Meggs employs over forty assistant state attorneys used to prosecute cases in six counties in Florida’s panhandle.
In 2011, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell had been employed the 2nd Judicial State Attorney’s Office under State Attorney Willie Meggs for nearly ten years. The Meggs and Campbell family is deeply rooted in the Tallahassee community. DeShon and his family, are Orlando natives, and had lived in Tallahassee for nearly ten years. At the age of thirty, DeShon’s single mother bought an half acre of property and had a home built for her, her two sons, her mentally disabled nephew (whose mother died when he was 3-years-old) and her great-niece (whose mentally disabled mother could not care for her).
In 2010, DeShon enrolled into Tallahassee Community College at the age of 16. For two full semesters DeShon was successfully completing his coursework. In the spring of 2011, at the beginning of the semester, DeShon and his mother voluntarily walked into the Leon County Sheriff’s Office after DeShon informed his mother that one of his ex-girlfriends and her brother had been murdered and that the police were following him—and had pulled an SUV over that he was a backseat passenger in just hours after the Leon County Sheriff’s Office began their investigation. At the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, DeShon and his mother were met with EXTREME RACISM.
DeShon was subsequently charged with the murders. DeShon pleaded NOT GUILTY to all charges. DeShon’s mother was robbed of nearly $30,000 by a rogue defense attorney named Greg Cummings—who she and DeShon fired in part because Mr. Cummings refused to file motions to have the victims’ autopsy reports placed into public record (State Attorney Willie Meggs’ Office refused to allow the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office to release the victims autopsy reports), also Mr. Cummings refused to file a motion to have DeShon’s cell phone records Unsealed (the Leon County Sheriff’s Office obtained a court order to have DeShon’s cell phone records sealed shortly after the traffic stop hours after the victims were found murdered); Mr. Cummings also failed to communicate numerous amounts of information to DeShon including the fact that Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and his son, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell, along with State Attorney Willie Meggs and Chief Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman presented fraudulent information to a grand jury in order to obtain an indictment against DeShon, a black male child.
After DeShon was charged with Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder, Possession of a Firearm by a Juvenile Delinquent, Cultivation of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, all DeShon and his family could hope for was a fair trial. The prosecution process against DeShon was VERY WELL ORCHESTRATED by all of those involved. However, by the GRACE OF GOD, DeShon’s mother, who had previously studied to be a paralegal in Orlando at Valencia College before she walked away from her dream career path in order to care for her dying sister’s children, read every single word of the Leon County Discovery Report (that did not include the victims autopsy reports) and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING pointed to DeShon as to being the murderer.
In 2012, as DeShon awaited trial, simultaneously to firing Mr. Cummings, DeShon was charged with Solicitation to Commit Murder. In that situation, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell and State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin admitted to being the foundation as to the hit on the witness—not DeShon. Also, Newlin enlisted a possibly unsuspecting deputy to smuggle contraband into the Leon County Jail. Money was provided to a former convicted felon, who was in the Leon County Jail by State Attorney Willie Meggs and the Leon County Sheriff’s Office.
This crazy orchestrated judicial process was brought to light by DeShon’s mother during and after DeShon’s judicial process. Government officials retaliated against DeShon’s family during his judicial process. Even after DeShon’s conviction, government officials continue to retaliate against DeShon’s family. DeShon’s family no longer lives in the Florida panhandle. His mother is sickened as to how much racism exists in the panhandle versus that in Orlando. Whereas recently Orlando pulled together to mourn the lives that were lost in a terrorist attack. Seemingly, government officials in the panhandle are the EVIL—the TERRORIST—that operate in their communities.
According to many lawyers practicing in the state of Florida, there is no law or policy that prevents an elected official and family members within other state agencies from prosecuting cases—NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST EXISTS—JUST CORRUPTION!
