Woman returned from prison gets sent right back with new 12-year sentence on drug plea

A Fort Smith woman with a long and varied criminal history in Sebastian County was sentenced to 12 years in prison with an additional 15-years suspended in court proceedings Wednesday in Sebastian County Circuit Court..

The turnaround on Breanna R. Campos was quick as she was just recently returned to the Sebastian County Detention Center after serving a sentence for a May arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia and felon possession of a firearm that violated her parole from a previous drug conviction.

According to booking information, the 29-year-old Campos was returned from the Arkansas Department of Corrections on July 14 to face previous charges she had not bonded out on previously. . Those charges include possession of firearms by certain person, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a controlled substance. She was also listed as a habitual offender.

On Wednesday she appeared in court with attorney David Powell and took a plea dealen that saw her sentenced to the 12 years with the additional 15-year suspended. She was giving credit for time served, had to furnish a DNA sample to the courts and her driver's license will be suspended for six months when she is released.

Based on the plea deal the court withdrew two petitions to revokes against Campos.

Since 2019, the Fort Smith woman has been arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia twice, possession of controlled substance twice, maintaining a premises for drug activity, trafficking, and felony firearms violations.

Campos will remain in Sebastian County Detention Center until her transfer to the ADC later this month.
