Tevin Campbell Charged With Misdemeanor

R&B singer Tevin Campbell was ordered to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings and an AIDS awareness class after pleading no contest to soliciting a lewd act from an undercover policeman, according to the Associated Press.

Campbell, 22, was also fined $1,080 Monday for the misdemeanor conviction stemming from his July 8 arrest. He was ordered to return to court February 7 with proof that he has completed the drug rehabilitation and AIDS education requirements of his sentence.

The singer was arrested in a police sting outside of Van Nuys Elementary School in Los Angeles.

Campbell made his debut at the age of twelve when he sang on “Tomorrow (A Better You, Better Me),” from Quincy Jones’ 1989 album, “Back On The Block.” Soon after that, the artist then known as Prince invited Campbell to sing on the 1990 “Graffiti Bridge” soundtrack; Campbell contributed “Round And Round.” In 1991, Campbell released his debut album, “T.E.V.I.N.”

Campbell’s most recent release
is his self-titled record (and his fourth album overall), which was released earlier this year.
