A federal judge in Georgia has been arrested on drug and weapons charges after federal agents say he bought drugs for a stripper with whom he was having an affair.
Senior U.S. District Judge Jack Camp Jr. has been charged with posession of cocaine, marijuana and the painkiller roxycodone, according to court documents. He is also charged with posessing a firearm as an unlawful user of controlled substances and with aiding and abetting the posession of drugs by the stripper, who had a prior drug conviction.
Camp was arrested Friday after federal agents said he bought drugs from an undercover agent. He made an initial appearance Monday in a federal court in Atlanta and was released on $50,000 bond.
The charges allege that Camp had been paying the stripper for sex since the past spring and was fronting money to buy drugs for both of them. Before the sting that led to his arrest, he told her, "Let me pay him, because you've already got a record," the affidavit states.
