Jayru assaulted a security guard at Cass Tech in February of 2014.  In a plea deal with the court, Judge Timothy Kenny gave Jayru Campbell a huge break.  Campbell was sentenced to 60 days in jail, 75 hours of community service and serve 15 months of probation, including random drug testing and psychological exams.

Campbell started serving his sentence on July 28th, 2014.  He was released on September 12th, 2014.  He was released noon from the Wayne County Jail and within a few short hours assaulted his girlfriend on Detroit Public School property.

Judge Kenny had sentenced Campbell under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act.  If Jayru Campbell would have completed his sentence under those terms, he had the chance to avoid a criminal record.
