Convicted bomb-makers sentencing delayed

What had been scheduled as a sentencing turned into a motion hearing Friday for a Madison man after defense attorneys disputed new allegations presented in a sentencing report.

Brian Campbell pleaded no contest in January to second-degree reckless endangerment and possession of improvised explosives. Police seized what appeared to be bomb-making materials from Campbell’s apartment last year.

Assistant District Attorney John Rice claimed in a sentencing memorandum filed Tuesday that Campbell had searched the internet for instructions on making explosives and drew maps of tunnels on the university’s campus.

At the motion hearing today, Campbell’s defense argued the new information shouldn’t be included because it exceeds what Campbell admitted to.

Campbell’s sentencing will now be delayed, and a pre-sentence investigation will be carried out, but without a sentencing recommendation, the judge in the case ruled.
