April 30, 2014 — A Grayson man who had been running for magistrate was arrested Monday for domestic violence.
Stephen Campbell, 30, was arrested by the Carter County Sheriff's Department and charged with fourth degree assault and first degree wanton endangerment.
Campbell had withdrawn from the District 1 magisterial race on April 15.
He is being held in the Carter County Detention Center and at press time no bond amount had been set.
In Kentucky, a person is guilty of wanton endangerment in the first degree when, under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life, someone wantonly engages in conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another. It is a Class D felony.
In Kentucky, a person becomes guilty of assault when he or she intentionally causes physical injury to another person and is referred to as a Class A misdemeanor.
When a person recklessly injures another using a deadly weapon, this is also an assault in the fourth degree. The sentence is usually a year in jail.
