Cameron gets time served for online scam

GREENVILLE – Darke County Common Pleas Court Judge Jonathan P. Hein sentenced William S. Cameron to time served at a hearing Monday morning.

Cameron was recently convicted in Darke County for Grand Theft, a fourth degree felony, for scamming unknowing buyers on Craigslist. He has been jailed in Darke County for 111 days on a $30,000 bond.

The 54-year-old Hocking County resident reportedly stole over $10,000 from 30 victims across the United States, including Darke County and several from central Ohio, using the internet sales site, according to prosecutors for the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

Judge Hein ordered Cameron only pay back a Darke County victim that was present during the sentencing. He was placed on a community control sanction, but will not be supervised locally.

He was released from the Darke County jail immediately following the hearing. He was represented by local defense attorney Randall E. Breaden.
