FBI-Themed Stripper with Replica Assault Rifle Causes Alarm in Germany

A male stripper caused alarm in Frankfurt’s red-light district after he was spotted with what appeared to be an assault rifle and bullet-proof vest emblazoned with “FBI.”

“A significant number” of police were called to the area Saturday night, NBC News reports.

Turns out, the 30-year-old Hungarian man was table-dancing and wearing a costume.

The gun was a plastic replica “but had deceiving similarities to a G36 assault rifle,” police said.

The stripper was allowed to perform after a delay.

“Prosecutors in Frankfurt now have to evaluate whether the possession of the rifle replica violates German gun laws,” Frankfurt police spokesman André Sturmeit told NBC News.

Atlanta U.S. Atty. Finds No Bias in Cases Stripper-Loving Fed Judge Handled

Jack Camp, you might recall, was the wild and crazy federal Atlanta judge who got busted with guns and buying drugs for a stripper he was carrying on an affair with.

He went off to prison for a very brief time — three weeks — and was set free in May 2011.

Long after he’d been released, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta continued to exam cases he had handled to determine if there was any racial bias or signs of mental impairment. There were allegations by the stripper, who cooperated with the FBI, that Camp made some racist remarks. There were also some who claimed his judgment might have been impaired following a serious bicycle accident and subsequent drug use.

Well, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the U.S. Attorney has now concluded that in 28 cases in which defendants had requested a second look at their cases before Camp, there was no evidence of racial bias or mental impairment in sentences or rulings.

“Today, the U.S. attorney has publicly confirmed what I never doubted throughout this ordeal,” Camp said Thursday in an emailed statement to the Atlanta paper. “I am pleased the report vindicates that my decisions were fair, impartial and true to the law.”

U.S. District Judge Jack Camp Jr. of Atlanta, who created a big scandal after carrying on an affair with a stripper and getting busted for drugs in an FBI sting,  is scheduled to be released from a federal prison in El Reno, Ok. on Monday.

Camp — aka. inmate number  62216-019–   was sentenced to 30 days in prison on drug charges and for giving his government-issued laptop to a 27-year-old stripper who had a drug felony conviction and was working with the FBI.

His light sentence caused a stir and drew criticism from some people in the Atlanta community who felt he was given special treatment. Other critics claim the Justice Department screwed up the plea agreement, which opened the way for a lighter sentence.

Camp must serve 400 hours of community service and repay more than $30,000 for the cost of his case.

He will be on  supervised release for a year.

The Reagan appointee lost his lifetime judicial appointment and surrendered his law license.

Ex-Fed Judge in Atlanta Linked to Stripper Gets 30 Days in Prison

Ex-Atlanta U.S. District Judge Jack Camp, who embarrassed the judiciary and created a scandal by buying drugs for a stripper he was having an affair with, was sentenced Friday to 30 days in prison and 400 hours of community service, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The paper reported that Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan from Washington, who sentenced Camp in the Atlanta courtroom, said probation only was out of the question because Camp had breached his oath.

“He has disgraced his office,” Hogan said, according to the paper. “He has denigrated the federal judiciary. He has encouraged disrespect for the rule of law.”

Camp apologized in court, saying:

“I have embarrassed and humiliated my family as well as myself,” Camp said. “I have embarrassed the court I have served on and I am deeply sorry for that. When I look back at the circumstances which brought me here and look at what I did, it makes me sick.”

Camp said “the only thing I can say is that I’m so very sorry,” the paper reported.

On Nov. 19, Camp, who was on senior status, pleaded guilty to aiding a felon in possessing illegal drugs, possessing illegal drugs and giving his government issued lap top to the stripper he was having an affair with. He has resigned as a federal judge, which is lifetime presidential appointment. Camp bought drugs for the stripper, who was cooperating with authorities.

In a pre-sentence memo filed with the court, Camp’s attorney William Taylor of Washington wrote that Camp has suffered from acute depression, brain-damaging from a bicycle accident and personal family tragedy that may have contributed to him getting busted for buying cocaine for a stripper he was having an affair with.

Atlanta Fed Judge Busted With Drugs and Stripper Suffered Depression and Brain Damage, Sentencing Memorandum Says

Ex-Federal Judge Jack Camp is hoping to stay out of prison, hoping a judge considers his sentencing memorandum that focuses on his mental health and problems in life on March 11.

In a memo filed in federal court in  Atlanta on Friday,  Camp’s attorney William Taylor of Washington writes that Camp has suffered from acute depression,  brain-damaging from a bicycle accident and personal family tragedy that may have contributed to him getting busted for buying cocaine for a stripper he was having an affair with.

“They do not excuse his conduct,” his attorney wrote.” They do help explain, however, how in May of 2010 a lonely man in the twilight of his life became entangled with a seductive prostitute more than willing to take advantage of his needs and of his misguided impulse to be her friend and protector.”

The memo notes that Camp entered a psychiatric hospital after his arrest last year.  The physician in charge of his evaluation and treatment, Dr. Miles Quaytman talked to the probation office.

“In brief, since he sought pyschiatric care in 1999, Mr. Camp had been treated with standard antidepressant medications when his conditions actually involved a mood cycling or bipolar disorder,” the sentencing memorandum said. “Mood cycling disorders have both depressive and manic phases. Characteristic features of the manic phase are the excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have high potential for painful consequences and impairment of judgment about those consequences. Mr. Camp’s recent conduct is certainly consistent with that characterization.”

On Nov. 19, Camp, who was on senior status, pleaded guilty to aiding a felon in possessing illegal drugs, possessing illegal drugs and giving his government issued lap top to the stripper he was having an affair with. He has resigned as a federal judge, which is lifetime presidential appointment.  Camp bought drugs for the stripper, who was cooperating with authorities.

The papers also noted that  Dr. Qaytman found that Camp suffered serious head injury in a bicycling accident in 2000 and he has no memory of that.

“In addition to his mood cycling disorder and the physical damage to the brain, Mr. Camp has faced a number of difficult and stressful personal challenges,” the sentencing memorandum said.

Plus, he had prostrate cancer, his mother has dementia and his sister has stage four colon cancer.

The document asked that he be sentenced to probation and community service.

“No one can assess precisely how these features of his personal mental health and the sorrows and stress of his life interacted,” the filing said.
