A father and his two sons, who trafficked in cocaine and crack cocaine, were convicted of drug offenses after a five-day trial in federal court. 

Alston Campbell Sr., 64, and his sons, Alston Campbell Jr., 34, and William Campbell, 43, all from Waterloo, were convicted of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine. The three men all had additional charges: Alston Campbell Sr. was also convicted of distributing crack cocaine; Alston Campbell Jr. was also convicted of one count possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute; and William Campbell was also convicted of one count of of distributing crack cocaine and one count of distributing cocaine. 

The evidence in trial showed that Alston Campbell Sr. and his two sons were working together with others to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine in the Waterloo area. Evidence shows that both the DEA and FBI did multiple wiretaps on phones being used during the drug trafficking. Law enforcement determined, from these wiretaps, that the Campbells and others were bringing pounds of cocaine into Iowa from out of state and then selling the cocaine as both powder and crack cocaine in Waterloo.

Alston Campbell Sr. and William Campbell face a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $20,000,000 fine, and 10 years of supervised release following any imprisonment. Alston Campbell Jr. faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $10,000,000 fine and fire years of supervised release following any imprisonment.
