Last week a Texas appellate court upheld the conviction of Trinity Joe Campbell who was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a five year old girl in a public library restroom. His sentence of 60 years confinement was affirmed.
A.R., the five-year-old victim, testified at trial that she went to the public library with her mother. While at the library, A.R. went to the restroom by herself. A.R. testified that when she came out of the stall a man was in the restroom, took her back into the stall and touched her "pee pee" with his finger. A.R. testified that he then put her on the sink and touched her "pee pee" with his "pee pee." A.R.'s mother testified that, when A.R. returned from the restroom, A.R. was crying and said that a man had touched her. A.R.'s mother reported the incident to the librarian. A.R. was able to identify appellant, and the librarian called the police.
