City man convicted in kidnapping, rape, robbery

A Baltimore County jury on Thursday found a city man guilty in the rape and kidnapping of 17-year-old community college student last October.

William Justin Campbell, 25, was found guilty of rape, kidnapping and robbery. He faces a sentence of life plus 20 years. His co-defendant, Kenyon Travis Waller, 22, has a trial scheduled to begin August 12.

"Waller and Campbell are dangerous people," Baltimore County Police Chief James W. Johnson said in November following the two men's arrest a month later. He and Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts described said the men abducted multiple victims in a gold SUV, robbing some and sexually assaulting others.

When Campbell was arrested, he had the female student's cellphone, prosecutor Robin Coffin said.

The Community College of Baltimore County student got off the bus at Ingleside and Edmondson avenues in Catonsville on Oct. 1. Campbell pulled up in the SUV and forced her inside, where Waller was sitting in the back seat with a handgun, she told police.

His sentencing is scheduled for September 12.
