Brainerd man admits to violating conditions of his probation in court

The 28-year-old Brainerd man who was sentenced in 2009 to one year in jail for the beating death of Chad Charles Campbell on Aug. 14, 2008, Monday admitted to violating the conditions of his probation in Crow Wing District Court in front of Judge Erik Askegaard.

Askegaard set Bradley Thomas Lewis’s next probation violation hearing for 2 p.m. July 2.

Part of Lewis’ 2009 sentence was that if he violates any of the terms of his probation, he could face up to 98 months in prison. Part of Lewis’ original sentence included 15 years of supervised probation. Lewis, who entered a plea of guilty to first-degree manslaughter in 2009 in exchange for the dismissal of charges of second-degree unintentional murder, first-degree assault, second-degree manslaughter and third-degree assault, has had 16 conditions he must follow as part of his probation. According to court records, Lewis violated the conditions of no possession or use of drugs and alcohol and he failed to remain in contact with his probation officer.

King’s next court hearing set

His next review hearing was set by Crow Wing County Judge Kristine DeMay for 9 a.m. May 8.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Karsen King, the teen allegedly shot his father two times with a shotgun and told Stanley’s significant other that he was upset because they never let him do anything.
