According to news reports out of Atlanta, which have been confirmed by U.S. Marshal Richard Mecum, Senior Judge Jack Camp (N.D. Ga.) has been arrested on federal drug charges by the FBI. He’s scheduled to appear in court later today.
Nominated to the federal bench by President Reagan, Judge Camp has been a judge for a long time — over two decades, since 1988. He has presumably presided over countless drug cases. If Judge Camp ends up pleading guilty to anything, that will be one interesting Rule 11 colloquy.
Let’s have a look at His Honor, shall we?
A graduate of The Citadel, one of the nation’s top military colleges, Judge Camp isn’t your typical drug defendant. He’s an old white dude. Who wears suspenders. And previously served as chief judge of the Northern District of Georgia.
No word yet on the circumstances of Judge Camp’s arrest or the drugs allegedly involved. We’ll update this post with additional details as they come in.
UPDATE: Wow. Just wow. The allegations against Judge Camp are AMAZING….
