Federal judge to plead guilty in drug case

A federal judge in Georgia is expected to plead guilty to charges Friday stemming allegations that he bought drugs for a stripper.

Senior U.S. District Judge Jack Camp Jr. will plead guilty to the felony charge of  aiding and abetting a felon's possession of marijuana and cocaine, misdemeanor conversion of government property; and misdemeanor possession of roxycodone, a painkiller, Camp's lawyer, Bill Morrison, told CNN.

"We have made a mutually acceptable resolution of the case," Morrison
said.

    He's not the only crook on the bench,and he's supported by the most crooked of politicians!
    New rules,
    Cops,judges and politicians,will face stiffer prison sentences for violating the law.

    I definitely agree that law enforcement and judicial appointees face additional charges like people get for hate crimes. I'd include all attorneys in there too, because they are so well briefed on the law that they should know better. You'll never see the ones who write the laws make penalties stiffer for themselves.

    It's the capitalist who won't allow tougher penalties for the legal community,
    And it's the stupid people who won't hit the capitalist where it hurt(their wallet),instead we allow them to do as they feel,and continue to hate each other.

    Yup. We are but pawns in a bigger game. Keeping the citizenry at each other's throats is the best way to maintain power.

    There was a time when this type of nonsense was surprising to me, not so much anymore. It has become acceptable within our legal and political aren's for our leaders to have zero integrity. We should set hirer standards for sure!Disgusting!

    Our legal system is designed to protect those who run the system. Most all free countries hold lawyers financially responsible for frivilous lawsuits. If the lawyer falsely sues a company, for example, for a fake injury claim, these foreign courts (like australia) hold the shyster lawyer accountable. not so here in the USA. Until I see lawyers, bankers, daoctors, and politicians subjected to lie detector tests, I won't trust them.

    Doctors rather. I'll never trust someone who prescribes pills instead of healthy lifestyle changes to remedy ills. (unless they submit to a lie-detector)
