Campbell, who was previously convicted of theft and trespass, was required to wear a GPS ankle bracelet that sent a signal about his whereabouts every five minutes.

District Attorney George Brauchler tells KCNC-TV ( "I don't think that there's any doubt at all that this guy is the last guy picked on the prison Brain Bowl team."
