Feds: Ex-judge should go to prison for drug crimes

March 6th, 2011 by GREG BLUESTEIN, Associated Press in News

ATLANTA (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a former federal judge who pleaded guilty to two drug-related charges involving a stripper should serve at least 15 days in prison.

Prosecutors asked for the punishment for former veteran judge Jack Camp. They said in court documents Friday that prison time will reflect the seriousness of the offense.

Camp is seeking probation, a fine and community service when he is sentenced next week.

Camp resigned in disgrace from U.S. District Court in November when he pleaded guilty to a felony drug charge and two misdemeanors.

The 67-year-old says his decades-long battle with depression and a bicycling accident that caused brain damage led him to use drugs and start seeing a stripper.
