25-year-old Brandon Campbell of Botwood has pled guilty to 15 charges related to internet fraud stemming back to 2016.

Several of the incidents took place on Facebook local classified pages where Mr. Campbell accepted money for goods that didn’t exist. ¬†While the Crown is asking for nine months, Mr. Campbell believes a sentence of four to six months would be more appropriate.

In court on Tuesday, Mr. Campbell explained the thefts were the result of an opiod addiction, and that he’s sorry for what he’s done.
