Before the sentencing hearing, Lang’s family was escorted by Assistant District Attorney Alanda Dwyer and paraded past the family of Campbell who was sitting patiently outside the courtroom. Treveno Campbell had been awaiting trial in the Shelby County Jail for five years. Campbell had no prior criminal record. The judge reluctantly moved the sentencing hearing forward after rescheduling the hearing twice in disbelief that Campbell was squeaky clean and there was nothing on his record.
