(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A three year prison sentence has been ordered for a Kentucky man who used forged credit cards at Ohio River casinos.

Shawn Campbell, 35, of Nicholasville, used three different forged credit cards to make close to $3,000 of withdrawals at casinos in Lawrenceburg and Elizabeth, Indiana in March of 2013.

Campbell was charged April 22, 2013 in Dearborn County with 12 counts of Fraud on a Financial Institution (Class C felony), Forgery (Class C felony), and Theft (Class D felony).

Campbell pleaded guilty to a single charge of Fraud on a Financial Institution on April 15. He was sentenced in Dearborn Circuit Court to three years behind bars to be followed by three more years on probation.

Judge James D. Humphrey did not give Campbell credit for time served in jail before his sentence because he has been serving a two-year sentence ordered by a court in Harrison County for fraud charges related to the casino in Elizabeth.

The Indiana Department of Corrections lists Campbell’s earliest possible release date from prison as June 26, 2016.
