An Egg Harbor Township man has been sentenced to New Jersey state prison in connection to the first degree Strict Liability Drug Induced Death of an Egg Harbor Township man in 2016, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced.

Officials say Jamal Campos, 25, was sentenced Friday to 10 years in NJ state prison and must serve 85% with no parole for the charge of first degree Strict Liability Homicide Drug Induced Death and must serve concurrent to 20 years (8 years no parole) on the first degree Leader of a Narcotics Trafficking Network charge.

Police arrested Campos at the Bayview Inn & Suites on Albany Avenue in Atlantic City during the execution of a search warrant in August 2017.

Investigators were led to Campos following an investigation into the overdose death of Adam O’Gara on April 22, 2016 in Egg Harbor Township. That investigation led to charges of third-degree possession of heroin, third-degree distribution of heroin, and first-degree Strict Liability Homicide for the Drug Induced Death of Adam O’Gara.

Early on the morning of August 15, 2017, Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office detectives along with law enforcement officers from multiple agencies searched 80 rooms at the Bayview Inn & Suites that was heavily damaged during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Cash, narcotics and air soft guns were recovered during the execution of a search warrant.
