Camp, 67, is charged with purchasing and using cocaine, marijuana, Hydrocodone and Roxicodone. The allegations include an intimate relationship with an exotic dancer from the Goldrush Showbar.
His lawyer Bill Morrison insists “[t]his is not a case about judging . . . It is a case about judgment.”
Camp was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 and was the former chief judge of the U.S. District Court in Atlanta before taking senior status.
Agents also stated that they found two illegal firearms in Camp’s car.
Among his notable cases, Camp handed down a life sentence to former pro wrestler Harrison “Hardbody” Norris for luring women to his home and using them as prostitutes. In this case, he is charged with paying prostitutes for sex and using drugs with them.
Judge Camp was released on a $50,000 unsecured bond.
