bible-study

Two New Jersey men, Edward Woodson and Marcal Campbell, both 35, lured a mentally disabled woman to a home under the guise of having Bible study. They then took turns raping her for more than an hour before stranding her outside in a snowstorm.

It was January of 2011 when Woodson told the unnamed victim he was taking her to Bible study and promised her he’d bring her home afterward. The woman agreed to meet him at a church.

He then led her back to his house where he and Campbell carried out the unspeakable acts.

The next day, the two men forced her to leave the house in freezing temperatures and a snowstorm, with no money, no phone, and no way to get home.

It was several hours before she was discovered and taken for medical care. She immediately reported the assault.

It was weeks before the two depraved men were found and apprehended.

Both were charged with and convicted of aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault of a mentally disabled person. Woodson was given an additional charge of first-degree kidnapping.

Woodson was sentenced to 20 years in state prison, and Campbell was sentenced to 18 years.

Both will have to register as sex offenders and will have to serve a minimum of 85% of their sentences before being eligible for parole.
