Telling him he has “a scarlet letter chiseled on his forehead the rest of his life,” a federal judge sentenced disgraced ex-federal trial judge Jack Camp of Atlanta to 30 days in prison for committing repeated crimes with a stripper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. “He has disgraced his office,” Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan said of Camp.
Camp was arrested Oct. 1 in an undercover drug sting. Hogan also ordered Camp to serve 400 hours of community service, pay a $1,000 fine, and reimburse the government for the cost of its prosecution. Camp, 67, was appointed to the bench by President Ronald Reagan in 1987. He resigned before pleading guilty to drug charges and to giving the stripper his $825 government-issued laptop computer. Camp met the exotic dancer when she did a table dance for him. He then paid her for sex and together, they began smoking marijuana and snorting cocaine and a synthetic form of heroin.
