Ex-federal judge gets 30 days in prison for crimes

A former federal judge has been sentenced to 30 days in prison for drug-related crimes involving a stripper.

Jack Camp was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan to the prison time, plus a year of probation and a $1,000 fine. The 67-year-old Camp had asked Hogan to sentence him to probation and community service.

Camp resigned from the U.S. District Court in November after pleading guilty to a felony drug charge and two misdemeanors.

Camp said in court documents filed in February that his decades-long battle with depression and a bicycling accident in 2000 caused brain damage that led him to use drugs and start seeing the stripper.

After he started seeing the stripper, prosecutors say he soon began paying her for sex and using drugs with her.
