MEDFORD, Ore. — A former deputy with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office has pleaded guilty to one count of official misconduct and will never be able to work as a law enforcement officer again, according to the county District Attorney's office.

In October of 2019, police were examining a cell phone during the course of an investigation and found photos apparently taken by a JCSO deputy, 39-year-old Roger Campbell. The DA's office said that one photo was shared earlier that year, on May 5.

"The investigator observed photos of Roger Campbell in uniform, in his patrol car, exposing his genitals in an explicit sexually aroused manner," the DA's office said. "Roger Campbell had taken a photo and forwarded it to a female acquaintance."

The discovery of those photos led JCSO to ask Oregon State Police for an investigation into the deputy's actions. When OSP investigators went to serve a search warrant at Campbell's home, they were reportedly blocked by a gate.

"They phoned Roger Campbell and explained they had a search warrant; he came out and opened the gate," the DA's office said. "They entered the house, read the search warrant to him and requested him to turn over his cell phone."

When Campbell gave the phone to OSP, they found that it had been factory reset "so no information on the cell phone could be retrieved."

Campbell was charged with one count of Official Misconduct in the First Degree, a class A misdemeanor. Campbell pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to 11 months of bench probation and a $1,300 fine in lieu of completing community service.

The DA's office said that Campbell signed an order earlier this year revoking his police certificates from the state Department Public Safety Standards and Training.

"He will not be able to work as a police officer again," the DA's office said.
