Want to get off lightly if you ever get caught buying drugs while packing heat and cavorting with a stripper? Make sure you are a federal judge.


That's the lesson from the sordid tale of Jack T. Camp, a U.S. District Judge in Atlanta who recently pleaded guilty to charges related to his arrest in a hotel parking lot back in October.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC):


Camp pleaded guilty to one felony, aiding and abetting a felon's possession of cocaine, a painkiller and marijuana. He also pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors -- possession of illegal drugs and giving his government-issued laptop to the stripper.


Camp must serve at least 15 days in custody. Federal sentencing guidelines recommend a term of four to 10 months in prison, although Camp and his attorneys can ask for a more lenient sentence.
