New Jersey Man Gets Prison Term after 16th DWI

September 21, 2009

A New Jersey man with 16 drunken-driving convictions has been sentenced to 41/2 years in state prison.

Shaun Campbell, a 40-year-old East Rutherford resident whose driver’s license has been suspended 78 times, also must pay about $9,000 in fines and has lost his license for 39 years.

Campbell pleaded guilty in June to a DWI crash that happened in April.

At Friday’s hearing, he also pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of the April crash in which his SUV collided head-on with a pickup carrying a man and his 4-year-old daughter. They escaped serious injury.
