In a story which couldn't possibly be any more quaint, a federal judge who "built a reputation for handing out stiff sentences, including for drug convictions," was reportedly caught by the FBI in an undercover sting buying drugs for his prostitute stripper girlfriend.
The Associated Press reports:
ATLANTA — A 67-year-old federal judge's wild relationship with a stripper started with a lap dance, prosecutors said, and quickly escalated into escapades of prostitution and gun-toting drug deals for cocaine and prescription pills.So, theoretically, this alleged coke-head judge, who during his day job was sentencing people to rot in a cage for non-violent drug offenses, as soon as he got off from work went to the local strip club to snort cocaine and pay strippers for sex. Will the courts be as stiff with him with their drug sentences? Will they make him rot in a cage for years for his paying for prostitutes?
Don't bet on it.
While reports suggest some of the cases which he ruled over may have grounds to have their cases reexamined, this Atlanta Journal-Constitution report says they're basically screwed:
Froelich and other defense lawyers debated whether Camp’s arrest could open the door to court challenges from defendants convicted under the judge.So, that the judge who sentences you to jail for your cocaine use was himself a coke-head, is apparently irrelevant to our glorious arbiters of "justice."
The real crime here is that this judge, and thousands of others just like him, are throwing hundreds of thousands of non-violent, non-criminals, in jail for non-crimes in which there is no victim.
UPDATE: He pled guilty.
