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.

Now comes more fallout from the federal judge in Atlanta who pleaded guilty last month to buying drugs for a felon — a stripper — he was having an affair with after meeting her at the Goldrush Showbar.

U.S. Attorney Sally Quillen Yates announced in Atlanta Thursday that her office is investigating whether any of the cases U.S. District Judge Jack Camp handled were influenced by the use of drugs or racial bias.

“From May of 2010 forward, there is evidence that Camp’s judicial decision making process may have been impacted by bias and/or impairment and it has been established that he was involved in criminal conduct during this period,” Yates said in a statement. “Therefore, we will not object to a defendant’s request for a resentencing in any case in which the defendant was sentenced during this time.”

Yates said a woman — she referred to only as “Witness 1” — alleged that Camp, 67, used drugs, expressed racial bias about court cases and used a racial epithet in private. Her office declined to confirm that Witness 1 was the stripper Camp had an affair with, though court documents show that the stripper cooperated with investigators, which resulted in Camp’s arrest in October, and his eventual downfall.

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. Sentencing is set for March 4.

Senior U.S. District Judge Jack Camp of Atlanta, one of three judges featured in a ticklethewire.com story on “Fed Judges Gone Wild”,  pleaded guilty Friday in a case in which he is accused of buying drugs for a stripper he was having a relationship with, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Camp pleaded guilty to one felony, aiding and abetting a felon’s possession of cocaine, a painkiller and marijuana and two misdemeanors — possession of illegal drugs and giving his government-issued laptop to the stripper, the Atlanta paper reported.

Sentencing is set for March. He must at least get 15 days in custody, the paper reported. He also resigned as a federal judge, which is normally a lifetime appointment.

Rather than appear before a colleague, Camp, 67,  appeared in Atlanta before Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan, a D.C. judge assigned to the case.
