Greene County, Ohio: A 46-year-old convicted pedophile, Michael Campbell, whose entire face is covered in tattoos is facing charges of trying to rape a woman while she slept beside her boyfriend. Campbell has been dubbed the 'world's scariest criminal'. He is due to appear in court on Monday, October 25, and faces a life sentence if convicted. Documents filed in Greene County described Campbell as a "persistent sex offender", who was found guilty of attempted sexual assault in the first degree in Denver, Colorado in mArch 1995.
Campbell was recently arrested for attempted rape, after allegedly trying to sexually assault a woman while her partner slept next to her. The said incident took place on May 30. According to court documents, Campbell allegedly pulled down a woman's pants and underwear as her boyfriend lay asleep next to her and then proceeded to grind his body against hers. The woman's boyfriend then woke up and chased Campbell out of the residence. He is believed to have fled from the premises on a bicycle. Campbell, however, denied the accusation when police enquired. He alleged the woman had made sexual advances towards him in a bathroom, but he "told her no" because he "had a curfew and needed to leave". He is being held on a $100,000 bond in a Missouri county jail.
