Interlaken man accepts deal, pleads guilty to unlawfully dealing with a child

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a 27-year-old Interlaken resident following an investigation into an incident at a Covert home.

Philip Campbell, 27, of Interlaken was arrested on a warrant for unlawfully dealing with a child in the first degree. He was also charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana.

The arrest stems from an incident in which deputies responded to a Covert home in October 2018 for a complaint.

While there they located marijuana inside the home, which was easily accessible to children who were under the age of 16.

At arraignment Campbell agreed to a plea deal with the District attorney’s office and plead guilty to unlawfully dealing with a child.

Campbell was sentenced to six months in jail to be ran concurrent with the State time he is currently serving out of Tompkins County on an unrelated matter.
