Face Behind The Name: Meet Collin Campbell, Felon And 4chan Fan
Meet Collin Campbell.
The Navy Machinist’s Mate pleaded guilty earlier this month to a federal child pornography charge, becoming the latest 4chan user to cop to felonious behavior related to the notorious web site.
Campbell is pictured at right in a United States Marshals Service mug shot. On March 23, he entered a guilty plea in U.S. District Court in San Diego to a felony charge carrying a maximum 20-year prison term.
As TSG has previously reported, Campbell, who worked aboard the USS Boxer warship, was busted after Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) agents found illicit images of children on his computer and iPhone.
When questioned by a federal investigator, Campbell said he had obtained the illicit images found on his phone “from the website www.4chan.org.”
