Ex-Federal Judge Jack Camp Sentenced to 30 Days For Drug Use
Former federal judge Jack Camp of Georgia was sentenced to 30 days in prison today, 400 hours of community service and he must pay the costs of prosecution. He was allowed to remain on bond and voluntarily surrender to the designated facility at a later date. Camp pleaded guilty to offenses involving his use of drugs with his girlfriend, a former stripper with a prior drug conviction. The Government had asked for 15 days.
The sentencing judge, Thomas Hogan of Washington, D.C., also ruled Camps' offenses were all misdemeanors:
In one ruling issued Friday, Hogan found that Camp had not committed a felony, as prosecutors believed he did had when they signed the plea agreement. Instead, Camp committed three misdemeanors, exposing him to a sentence of up to 6 months in prison. Prosecutors asked Hogan to sentence Camp to at least 15 days in prison. Camp’s lawyers asked for probation and community service.
