Gregory Campbell pleads guilty to criminal harassment charge

A harassment trial came to an abrupt halt Friday following a guilty plea by a Charlottetown vice-principal.

Gregory Campbell, 50, pleaded guilty to a criminal harassment charge of repeatedly following the victim.

Campbell pleaded guilty on the first day of his trial Wednesday to a second criminal harassment charge that dealt with repeatedly communicating with the victim.

The Crown stayed a breach of undertaking charge Friday.

Provincial court Judge John Douglas granted the Crown’s request Friday to ban the publication of any information that would identify the victim.

Douglas ordered a pre-sentence report be prepared for a sentencing hearing on March 8.

    Greg and I dated for a couple of years and I have to say he showed me nothing but respect and love. He is devoted to his students and family; they would be lost without him. We have kept in touch over the years and I know Greg isn’t the man this woman is portraying he is. This court needs to review this woman’s past and her current actions in order to reveal Greg’s innocence.

    Having been coerced into a false guilty plea over a he said, she said case in a Charlottetown court myself a decade ago, and having been Mr. Campbell's pupil before that, I can say in an experienced fashion that this whole deal stinks to high Heaven. Adding to the stink is the lynch mob of commenters who have no idea what it's like to be offered a choice between a guilty plea with a conditional discharge (which Greg has probably been offered) or a term in a penitentiary, to be told that you have no way to prove your innocence and the girl sounds convincing, therefor you will probably be found guilty and given a sentence over 2 years in length. What's the real story? What did these two actually fight about? Poor Mr. Campbell. Best teacher I ever had

    i am sure Campbell will get away case to free as the judge in this case dos nothing for jail etc. and is he still working? he should be on extended leave with out pay. but as they say there are 3 sides to every story. 1 his side, 2 her side, then the 3rd side that is the truth.

    A progressive series of events that makes the logical conclusion it will only get worse. He needs Jail and lots of it and seriously restrictive conditions upon release.

    I thought he was a great teacher, this is shocking. Its amazing what can happen in relationships that make people act like this.. deep down I think he is a good person who got caught up in this.

      He maybe a good person if you are not a female. Obviously he has issues in regards to females and that NO means NO in his eyes it means if I harass you enough you will say YES. It is completely appalling that someone like this who obviously thinks he can get a way with anything is a teacher and still teaching. The testimony just screams of a man who thinks he is untouchable and can do whatever he wishes to a woman with not worries or penalties.

      this is long overdue in my opinion.. he is not a good person and certainly should not be teaching anyone.

      I can't believe how one-sided that whole article was. There are 3 sides to every story. Her side, his side, and the truth. Typical Guardian biased reporting.

      Listen to the lady, who I am shocked at, who if you are female should be outraged, not defending a man who is guilty of criminal harassement, that is a person who PLEAD guilty to two counts not fFOUND guilty, so how much more truth do you need, that is the story!!!!!!

    Please tell me this man is on extended leave from his job as a Vice Principal and his future in that position is being looked at the Dept. of Education. Unbelievable that someone in a position such as this does not know how to treat people and knows what is right and wrong.

      Sick, sick people know not what they do...from all I've learned this man is perhaps beyond help, sad to say, and SHOULD NOT be an influence on future generations! C'mon! It's NOT rocket science!

    You write that there is a publication ban to protect the victim's name yet there is another news article stating her name, comments that she made, etc . Maybe that article should be removed.

      It's also in the printed edition

    If there is a publication ban so as not to identify the victim, why is there still another earlier article on the Guardian website that names and provides the age of the victim? Perhaps some housekeeping is in order Guardian!
