Exploits of a Real ATF Agent is a compilation of stories told to the author by his father Charles E. Campbell who served as a Government Agent for over thirty years. He retired on June 30, 1954, and has the distinction of being awarded the Albert Gallatin Award for his outstanding service as both a Prohibition Agent and an ATF Agent. The recognition is rarely given and is a true indication of his meritorious service as a Treasury Agent.

Although many of the stories are true, the author has taken the liberty of embellishing a few stories to make this a more interesting book to read. These few stories could have happened in other regions of the country and with other Agents.

The story of legendary still-busting Sheriff Franklin Smith

     Newly elected Sheriff Franklin Smith and his family moved into their new home on the first floor of the Lawrence County, Alabama, Jail in January 1951. He would lead a war against moonshine liquor that became the stuff of legend, rising from the mists like a ghost, the story goes, to nab unsuspecting makers and sellers of illegal spirits.
     Sheriff Smith and his fellow moonshine raiders busted more than 1,000 stills during his eight-year tenure and jailed hundreds of distillers. But the aftershocks of one of those raids turned the sheriff’s life upside down. Facing possible prison time, his quest to regain his good name and reputation is a compelling part of “My Father, the Ghost.”
     But there’s another side to this “Ghost” story. You will meet a delightful array of jail characters, like Jackleg, the whiskey hauler; Big Richard, the murderer; and Peg, the nervous floor mopper.
     Screwdriver was the little 11-year-old prisoner who became everybody’s favorite, including the sheriff’s. You will meet Willie B., whose cat phobia had him climbing cell bars; Leland Herschel Bull, who sawed his way out of a third floor cell; and Sherman Lancaster, the jailed preacher whose flock tried to pray his cell door open.
     Luvenia, the jail cook, prepared banana pudding and yeast rolls for the prisoners upstairs; John Franklin, a prisoner, taught the sheriff’s daughter to drive.
     The still raids, the arrests, the sheriff’s federal trial, gutter politics, and jail characters . . . they’re all part of the true story of this Southern sheriff and his family of the 1950s.
     You will laugh and you may cry as you read the touchingly intimate story of the man they called “The Ghost.”

This has to stop, putting people in prison for sex crimes that never happened. It’s ruining too many lives. Someone has to do something. My life has been destroyed and the sad thing is I’m not the only one this has been done to.

I know how awful it is for an innocent man to be in prison. In my case I am the victim, yet I am a dot on the sex offenders map. I have spent time here in this prison, a place that tries to suck not only the life out of you but also the soul.

Every day I fight the desire to give up and just become a part of the prison, but I won’t let myself because I don’t belong here. I have not committed any crime. I believe I was put here not by mistake, but by intention. I have yet to find the answer to why. In many sleepless nights here in this locked cell, far from home, I have searched for the answer.
