(Woodbury, N.J.) The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s office announced that Curtis M. Campbell, 46, of Woodbury N.J. was sentenced today to six years in New Jersey state prison for distributing a controlled dangerous substance to two minors.
By pleading guilty on February 16, 2016 to two counts of third-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, Campbell acknowledged that during a “sleepover,” he administered the sleep medication Ambien to two minors under the age of 18 children on January 21 and January 22, 2014.
Campbell said he knew that Ambien was a product to be administered by prescription and that there was no doctor’s prescription for that medication for either child. Campbell’s sentencing was postponed several times for medical reasons. At the time of the last postponement, Campbell was court-ordered to vacate his residence where the offenses occurred. He did not and had been jailed since mid-September until his sentencing hearing.
