HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A Madison County jury has found a man guilty in a trial involving sodomy and sexual abuse charges.

The jury returned with the verdict against Roland Campos just before 3 p.m. Wednesday.  They found him guilty of two counts of sexual abuse of a child under 12 and two counts of sodomy.  The victim was 5 years old.

The abuse happened between 2012 and 2013 in a Madison County home, according to prosecutors. Campos was dating the victim’s mother.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office learned of the case in 2013.

Circuit Judge Jim Smith ordered Campos immediately be taken into custody with a $500,000 cash-only bond.  Sentencing is scheduled for July 7.

    He will be sexually abused by inmates when they find out he is a child molester ! Deserves what he gets… He is an animal

    Does anyone ever stop to think that a person could be wrongfully convicted??? I know this man. He is not capable of such an atrocity! He has children of his own. He has never touched them or any other child.

    Obviously, its not something he would go and share with family/friends. Does anyone think you can be fooled by someone’s false act? Someone probably did such to him to make him this way. Everyone is fooled until it is done to them.

        Why would his ex-wife want to set him up? What could he have done there? And what ex-girlfriend? He was dating the child’s mom when this happened, so she wasn’t his ex. It would seem that he has a brother by your name. Amazing, a brother saying they guy was set up.

        she wasnt his ex until the child came forward thomas!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do you think his ex wife divorced him? he has never admitted to ever doing anything wrong in over the 20 yrs that i have known him. why should now be any different.

    Tomas, is his uncle also being wrongfully accused of the same crime? His uncle Russell Campos is currently out on bond for two counts of sexual abuse of a child less than twelve years of age and has a trial date very soon. One of two things are going on here: 1. they are both being “set up”. or 2. this sick fascination with children runs in the family. This is nothing more than a crime that didn’t get swept under the rug.

    Tomas, Why are you so sure he is innocent just because you are his brother? Of course you are bias. Either that you are guilty as well. In your heart you know the truth. Is it possible he did touch his child and you know nothing about it. GOD knows the truth and his judgement is fair and just.

    v bailey??? thats not public knowledge yet you shouldnt have said ” his child” . that one was touched according to her mother but they do not know by whom yet.the one that did come forward was not one of his!!!
