Appeals Court Reverses Some Convictions Against Maine Drug Prosecutor
A Federal Appeals court has reversed some of the convictions against a former top Drug Prosecutor in Maine, who was sentenced to 16 years for child pornography.The appeals court in Boston upheld convictions against James Cameron of Hallowell on seven counts, but vacated convictions on six counts. Cameron was convicted in 2011 of 13 counts of sending, receiving and possessing child pornography. In his appeal, Cameron’s attorney argued certain technical evidence should not have been admitted during Cameron’s trial. The case now goes back to Federal Court in Maine for re-sentencing or for a new trial.
