Demolition man guilty of tax fraud…

Prosecution says man forged his son’s signature on multiple fraudulent documents.

The 60-year-old general manager of a demolition company was sentenced to five years of formal probation and ordered to pay $200,000 in restitution for his guilty plea Tuesday to charges related to a multi-million dollar workers’ compensation and tax fraud scheme.

James Gregory Campbell of Lakewood pleaded guilty to making false or fraudulent statements to reduce insurance premiums, perjury, and making fraudulent statements to obtain or deny compensation, according to court records. Scores of other related charges were dismissed as part of the plea agreement with prosecutors.

Deputy District Attorney Debbie Jackson dismissed all charges against Campbell’s son, Robert Scott Campbell, 27, of Bellevue, Wash., because investigators learned that his name was forged on multiple fraudulent documents.

James Campbell paid $100,000 in restitution today and agreed to pay $1,667 a month until he pays the other half, Jackson said. If he fails to do that he can expect to serve time in prison, the prosecutor added.

It will take the elder Campbell five years to pay the remainder of the restitution.
