Daphne Campbell’s son back in jail for using fake ID

in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

Gregory Campbell, son of Miami Democratic State Sen. Daphne Campbell, is back in jail.

Campbell, 34, was recently freed from jail while awaiting a new trial on Medicaid fraud.

But that changed, according to the Miami Herald, when he tried to buy a ring for his wife at Aventura Mall, where he allegedly used a fake driver’s license to open an account at Kay Jewelers.

Gregory Campbell faces arraignment on charges of forgery and possession of a fictitious ID. If formally charged, the Herald reports Campbell could be in jail until June, when his Medicaid trial begins.

Originally convicted of Medicaid fraud in 2013, a court sentenced Campbell to seven years in prison before an appeals court reversed the conviction, forcing a retrial.
