Atlanta, Georgia (AP) --

A federal judge faces drug and firearms charges after an exotic dancer at an Atlanta strip club told authorities the judge used cocaine, marijuana and other illegal drugs with her.

Attorneys for Senior U.S. District Judge Jack T. Camp said after
a hearing Monday, Oct. 5 that the 67-year-old intends to plead not guilty.
Camp, who lives in Coweta County some 35 miles southwest of
Atlanta, was released on a $50,000 unsecured bond.

Authorities say in an affidavit Camp paid a dancer at Goldrush
Showbar to have sex with her in early 2010. The informant also told
authorities the two used drugs together on several occasions.

FBI agents who arrested the judge Friday, Oct. 1 said they found two
illegal firearms in his car along with a bag containing blue pills
and a white powdered substance.
