(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The brother-sister duo who assaulted a man in his Moores Hill home last year have pleaded guilty.
Tony Campos, 43, and his sister, Lisa Campos, 32, had been in an argument with friends at an Aurora bar in the early morning hours of June 12, 2011. The argument led the siblings to pay a visit to one of those friends at his home on Old State Road 350 a couple hours later.
The Campos had unscrewed a porch light before Lisa knocked at the door, investigators stated in the charging information. When the homeowner answered, Tony Campos allegedly assaulted him and held a gun to his chin. Two other people in the home witnessed the attack and were allegedly threatened with the gun by Tony Campos.
Both Campos were charged with Criminal Confinement with a Deadly Weapon (Class B Felony), Batter with a Deadly Weapon (Class C Felony), Intimidation with a Deadly Weapon (Class C Felony), and Burglary (Class A Felony).
Lisa Campos reached a plea agreement with prosecutors on July 10, entering a guilty plea to a felony charge of Residential Entry while all other charges against her in Dearborn Circuit Court were dismissed. She was sentenced to three years, all either suspended to one year and 44 days probation or credit for time already served.
Tony Campos, who remains held at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center, has also reached a plea agreement which would convict him of Battery with a Deadly Weapon (Class C felony) while dismissing the rest of the charges. The plea deal must still be accepted by Dearborn Circuit Court Judge James D. Humphrey.
Prosecutors and Campos’ defense agreed to not have the sentenced exceed six years, according to the agreement.
