Campbell County Criminal Court Judge E. Shayne Sexton ordered the 55-year old Bullock into immediate custody of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office where he will await sentencing – which is scheduled for September 24.

This case was investigated and prosecuted by Lt. Detective John Long of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office. The Knoxville Police Department, Jacksboro Police Department, Campbell County Children’s Center, and the Department of Children Services were also an integral part of the investigation and trial.
