Former senior federal judge Jack Camp should be treated “like every other similarly situated criminal” and sentenced to prison time, federal prosecutors say in a sentencing memo concerning his guilty plea to abetting a felon in the unlawful possession of drugs.

The defense blamed Camp’s untreated bipolar disorder (he instead received medication for depression) and a traumatic brain injury that allegedly adversely affected his impulse control for his decision to help a stripper buy drugs. But the Department of Justice Public Integrity Section pointed to Camp’s knowledge of criminal justice and leadership role on the bench in saying that he should serve some time, recounts the Daily Report in an article reprinted in New York Lawyer (reg. req.).

The DOJ did not, however, recommend any specific sentence for Camp in the Atlanta case, although it told the court it could enhance the sentence because of Camp’s background. His counsel is arguing for probation.

A U.S. Probation Office presentence investigation says the recommended range runs from a minimum 15 days to six months, the article continues.

The prosecution points out that Camp, who was initially accused of having firearms in his vehicle (one was reportedly not only loaded but cocked), although he did not plead guilty to any gun crime, could have gotten up to 10 years, and a five-year minimum term, if convicted of a federal gun charge.

Camp is scheduled to be sentenced Friday, according to the Times-Herald.


Ex-Detroit mayor denies any talk about stripper

DETROIT — Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, accused of obstructing the police investigation into the death of a stripper, testified Monday that the 2003 fatal shooting was never discussed among his administration and high-ranking officials.

Kilpatrick was in court to answer questions about what may have happened to his e-mail in 2002 and 2003. He offered his firmest public denial yet of any role in stifling the investigation, after more than two hours of testimony.

“Unequivocally, we never discussed Tamara Greene. It had absolutely nothing to do with us,” Kilpatrick said in response to friendly questioning by a city attorney.

Greene’s family is suing him and the city, claiming Kilpatrick squelched the investigation into her unsolved fatal shooting because she danced for him at a party months earlier in 2002. He denies it and insists there was no party. After six years of litigation, he called the lawsuit “frivolous” on Monday.

Kilpatrick, 40, was transported from a prison to federal court where he’s being held for violating probation in a criminal case. He’s also awaiting trial on separate fraud and tax and .

Kilpatrick spent much of his time in the witness chair jousting with Greene family attorney Norman Yatooma. He said Greene’s death was never a subject of any incoming or outgoing e-mail.

Kilpatrick said he would not know how to purge e-mails from the city’s serverhe’s and that hes not tech-savvy , countering suggestions that he may have deliberately deleted evidence. He said from 2002 to fall 2008 he had three computers when he was mayor,, but typically used only his City Hall computer.

“Unfortunately I rarely did computer work at all at home I’m not a computer guy. ,” Kilpatrick said.

He said mail in his inbox ranged from “`Happy birthday’ to `We need to cut grass at X park,’ and everything in between.”

Kilpatrick said city officials knew that text messages, not e-mail, were the way to get his attention. Indeed, sexually explicit messages with his chief of staff led to his ouster from City Hall.

As he questioned Kilpatrick, Yatooma was repeatedly reined in by U.S. Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen, who stopped him from asking about a confidential FBI report & limited the inquiry to e-mail from 2002 & 2003.

“What you’re doing with your questioning, you’re testifying. … I don’t want speeches,” Whalen told Yatooma at one point.

The city & Kilpatrick are asking, the Greene family’s lawsuit be dismissed. No one has been charged in Greene’s death, but the city has said her killer is in prison on an unrelated case.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A Jefferson County jury has awarded a former stripper $100,000 in a lawsuit in which she claimed the club that employed her failed to stop her from driving home after her on-the-job drinking. Patsy Hamaker of Bessemer was injured in a wreck after leaving work at The Furnace on Oct. 17, 2007. She said she can no longer dance because of her injuries.

Hamaker said the club disregarded its own safety rules when it let her drive home that night. Attorneys for the club argued that employees tried to keep Hamaker from driving away.

The Birmingham News reported that the jury award made Tuesday is for compensatory damages. No punitive damages were awarded.

Tiger Woods is rumored to have had an affair with Jamie Jungers, among about a dozen other women. New reports have surfaced that Jungers has recently been a stripper.

Jamie Jungers picModel Jamie Jungers has recently appeared on Today and Dateline NBC in connection with golfer Tiger Woods and his alleged affairs with some 13 women around the United States. But weeks before she made those high-profile appearances, calling herself a “model,” she was apparently stripping at a posh Las Vegas club called Badda Bing.

RadarOnline.com recently reported this and more – including comments from club boss Rick Delcastro. He said the blonde and curvy Jungers danced at the joint for two months and then stopped showing up.

“I fired her because she didn’t show up for two weeks,” Delcastro told RadarOnline. “Then I saw her on TV being interviewed about Tiger Woods and she had gained so much weight I didn’t recognize her. She got greedy and she got sloppy and she went out there and talked. I could lose good customers with people like that. I’m just glad she left.”

Delcastro described Badda Bing as a $30 million, “five-diamond” gentleman’s club not in need of bad word-of-mouth. “What goes on upstairs, stays upstairs.”

He added that when he saw Jungers on television, telling tales of fun with Tiger Woods, he was alarmed at how she looked compared to when she was stripping.

“She has put so much weight on I wouldn’t let her in the door of my club now, but she was a beautiful bunny,” he said. “You can’t take the stripper out of the stripper and if Tiger’s wife sees this girl she’ll go over the deep end.”

Comparing older photos to the recent Today appearance, Jungers indeed looks heavier – a beautiful woman sporting maybe around 15 more pounds, from the looks of it. She allegedly met Woods in 2005 and carried on with him for more than a year. During that time, one item he lavished on her – among a possible slew of gifts – was plastic surgery. Life & Style magazine reported that Woods gave Jungers thousands of dollars for liposuction on her thighs.

She may have recently been a model, or a stripper, or both. But as Jungers makes herself visible in the fray of the biggest golf scandal of all time, she currently appears a tad heavy to meet the standards of either modeling or stripping.


It’s good to be the king of the water. That’s at least according to a lap dancer named Theresa, who recently sold a story to British tabloid News of the World involving herself, another woman, and deliciously randy swimming star and admitted (former?) pothead Michael Phelps, who reportedly treated the two dames to a long night of passionately X-rated bouncy-bouncy last November.

Theresa, a 34D Latina (according to the publication), reportedly met Phelps and several of his buddies when the group patronized the strip club at which she works in Phelps’ hometown of Baltimore. “They were there a couple of hours and asked three of us back. Michael was a bad tipper but he was nice to me, although he was kind of mean and cocky to some of the girls,” she told the tabloid.

Back at Phelps’ million dollar-plus pad (on, appropriately, the waterfront) Theresa asked the virile amphibian the innocent question, “If you were to have a threesome tonight, who would you like it to be with?” As apparently Phelps’ well-documented passion for marijuana bong hits (first published, incidentally, in a smarmy British tabloid called – you guessed it – “News of the World“) has dampened neither his libido nor his common sense, the multiple gold medal winner selected the seductive stripper and another of her friends.

Theresa“Everybody else stayed put while we went upstairs and jumped into bed…. The sex lasted for about three hours. Michael should get another Olympic gold for marathon love-making!” said the sound bite-happy dancer.

Theresa didn’t stop at that either, telling the tabloid of Phelps’ newfound love…of booze and dope. “He tried to get some [pot] for me one night but couldn’t find any.” While he refused to take her out on a regular date in public, he did treat her to a value meal at Taco Bell (although any friend of the hookah might recognize the genius in such a choice).

“Michael’s not the all-American boy the public thinks he is. I never saw him smoke marijuana but he was into booze and chewing tobacco. When he’s been drinking that’s usually when he starts crying. He cries a lot,” she added.

Phelps, who has recently been linked to Opposite Marriage crusader and erstwhile Miss California USA Carrie Prejean (although he denies the match-up), is, perhaps not surprisingly, reportedly something of a fan of the ladies. “When I ran into another girl called Jen at a party it turned out he was sleeping with BOTH of us. And I’ve heard that there are at least five or six girls he can call on any time to come over and be with him,” Theresa told News of the World.

“He’s a person I can just hook up with and it doesn’t bother me,” Theresa said. “But I don’t see a future between us. His mother would never approve.”

Good morning, Baltimore!


 A former exotic dancer, who falsely accused Michael Flatley of rape, has been told by an American judge that she faces jail unless she cooperates with his lawyers as they seek to recover $11m in damages.

Tyna Marie Robertson tried to extort $30m (€21m) from the Riverdance star after saying she would go public with false allegations that he had sexually assaulted her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2002.

She was arrested at her home in an affluent suburb of Chicago on Monday, after failing to appear for a court date.

 Robertson was later brought before Cook County judge Alexander White who told her she must cooperate with Mr Flatley’s lawyers who are seeking documentation of her assets.

 “This is your get-out-of-jail pass. If there is no cooperation . . . We are talking about civil contempt. I will put you in county jail for six months. No questions asked,” he added.

 Mr Flatley, who is out of the country at the moment, has said he fought Robertson’s claims in order to help protect other celebrities from malicious, money-orientated claims. He has vowed to donate any money recovered from the former stripper to charity.

 His lawyers had asked the court that she be held in contempt after failing to attend a court date on December 10.

 Robertson claimed that she had not received notice of the hearing.

However Mr Flatley’s attorney, Ariel Weissberg, said he would ask that she be kept in jail if she continued pressing the issue.

“She should stop while she’s ahead,” he added.

 Mr Flatley was in Las Vegas in 2002 to celebrate the Venetian Casino’s acquisition of his ‘Lord of the Dance’ show when he met Robertson.


 He said their relationship on the night of October 19 was “entirely voluntary and consensual”.

 About a month later she went to the Las Vegas police and accused Mr Flatley of rape. However when officers began investigating her claims, Robertson refused to make a formal statement. It later emerged that her lawyer, Dean Mauro, had offered to settle the matter and avoid publicity if Mr Flatley paid his accuser $30m.  The dancer immediately contacted the FBI when the demand for money was made. He later lodged a $100m counter suit against Robertson and Mauro in response to the multi-million dollar civil rape lawsuit.

 Mauro has since been disbarred from practising law for a year for his role in the episode. Robertson, who attempted to take a similar case against a Chicago doctor, is currently suing American football star Brian Urlacher in a high-profile paternity case.


Woman convicted in 2007 after infecting husband

OTTAWA – An HIV-infected stripper who infected her husband faces possible deportation from Canada after being convicted of criminal negligence and aggravated assault for knowingly passing on the virus that causes AIDS.

 In a ruling released Tuesday, the Federal Court dismissed a challenge from Suwalee Iamkhong, who came to Canada from Hong Kong on a work visa in 1995 to work as an exotic dancer in Toronto.

Originally from Thailand, Iamkhong met Canadian Percy Whiteman soon after arriving in Canada and she married him in 1997. She had already tested positive for HIV in Hong Kong, but she not reveal her status to her husband until she fell ill and was hospitalized in 2004. Iamkhong, 39, was sentenced in August 2007 to three years in prison after being convicted of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and aggravated assault. Federal Court Justice Russel Zinn ruled against Iamkhong in her challenge to a report, prepared by Immigration officials, finding her inadmissable to Canada on grounds of having a criminal record that garnered a sentence of more than two years. A report, by law, must be prepared for the federal immigration minister before he makes a decision on whether to deport.Zinn noted that non-citizens may be removed from Canada if they have been convicted of “serious criminality, as the applicant has.”At her trial in January 2007, Iamkhong failed to convince the court that she did not believe she had HIV, despite the positive test result in Hong Kong. She argued that she mistakenly thought she had been tested in Canada for immigration purposes and found to be HIV-negative.


Exotic dancer Barbara Sanderson has filed a Human Rights complaint against the owner of a Mississauga strip club, claiming that she was dismissed due to her age.

November 7, 2008 09:25 AM – A second adult dancer has come forward to file a human rights complaint against the owner of a Mississauga strip club,alleging she too was fired because of her age.
Barbara Sanderson, 45, a divorced mother who lives in the area of Hurontario St. and Bristol Rd. with her two teenaged children, is the second person to complain to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario in recent weeks about John Sit, owner of the New Locomotion Strip Club on Matheson Blvd.
Both she and Kimberlee Ouwroulis, 44, say they were fired from the club because they were too old.
Both cases are now before the tribunal, but a hearing date has yet to be set for either.
Sanderson, who used the stage name Bridgette, has been dancing since 2001. She worked at Locomotion for seven months. But, on June 13, she claims she was terminated because she received some bad reviews from customers who called her “old and ugly.”
“They pulled the rug out from under me,” Sanderson said Thursday (Nov. 6). “I was earning my way and given every indication that I was doing a great job until they canned me.”
Sanderson, who now works at an airport-area strip club, said the manager of the establishment had written a letter of reference for her to secure the mortgage on her home just a month before she was fired.
“He said in the letter I was an ideal employee with a great future at the club, and then all of a sudden, I get fired,” she said.
None of the allegations have been proven.
Sit hasn’t returned more than a dozen phone messages left by The News.
Earlier this fall, Ouwroulis filed a similar complaint against Sit.
“He told me that the club is going in a new direction with younger girls,” Ouwroulis said.

“That’s age discrimination to me.”
The complaint, filed Sept. 16 to the tribunal, alleges that Sit got rid of Ouwroulis back on June 6 because of her age. The complaint also names other dancers as witnesses.
Ouwroulis, who goes by the stage name Kristy, has been dancing for four years. She worked at Locomotion for most of those four years and is now employed at an east-end strip club.
The Tribunal’s mandate is to resolve applications brought under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
Ouwroulis will be seeking close to $100,000 in her application. She said she earned close to $8,000 a month while at Locomotion and was one of the hardest-working and most-liked employees.
“I was the older girl but the girl who looked great,” she said. “I was never in trouble at work. I’ve never been reprimanded. I don’t have a criminal record … I am just a professional worker who takes dancing very seriously.”


Three teenage Michigan girls ran away to Elyria, Ohio, staying with 20-year-old couple they met in a strip club.

October 30, 2008: Chronicle-Telegram: The girls, who were being held at the Juvenile Detention Home, were picked up Monday after two of the girls were stopped after a sheriff’s deputy saw a cigarette box being tossed from the car in which they were riding.

As it turned out, the vehicle–a Hyundai Tucson–had been reported stolen from Burton, Mich. Inside, deputies found the two girls with two Elyria men, ages 18 and 19. The men were let go, and the girls were charged with receiving stolen property and confirmed as runaways, according to deputies.

The girls led police to the third girl, a 15-year-old.

A man and woman in the home, both 20, told deputies they were letting the three girls stay with them. They’d met the 15-year-old–they said they thought she was 18 or 19–while she was “stripping at Club 57,” according to a police report.

A search of the girls’ belongings turned up a BB gun and a digital camera with pictures and videos of them inside the stolen SUV.


The baby in his lap was a stripper: S.C. man leaves infant daughter in car outside jiggle joint

Maybe that family outing to Derriere’s Gentleman’s Club wasn’t such a great idea.

A South Carolina clan learned that hard lesson this week after cops busted a dad for leaving his sleeping 10-month-old daughter in a car while he delighted in a lap dance – and his stripper wife shook her stuff onstage.

Myrtle Beach police collared Geoffrey Hale on charges of unlawful conduct toward a child, accusing the 27-year-old handyman of shedding his fatherly duties in favor of a dancing lovely who shed her clothes while he puffed on a cigarette.

Hale was arrested Wednesday when cops received a call about a baby left unattended in a Lexus at Derriere’s, an all-nude flesh palace that bills itself as “unforgettable.”

“There is nobody in it and the radio is running, but there is like a 4- or 5-month baby in a carseat in the backseat of the car with no one in it,” a caller told 911.

Officer Joseph West ran a license plate search before stepping into Derriere’s to locate the car’s owner – but first he had to wait out the raunchy bump-and-grind Hale was enjoying.

“When the dancer left the table, I then asked the man his name and it was the suspect I was looking for,” West wrote in a police report. “I then asked him to step outside to talk with me.”

Hale then explained that his wife, Kara, strips at the club and that he was only there to pick up a phone from her. He told the cop he left the sleeping tot in the unlocked car – with the keys still in it – because he hadn’t wanted to take her inside the club.

West sent Hale to the slammer, and the baby home with her exotic-dancing mom.

“I can’t imagine driving to that parking lot with a 10-month-old in the car, let alone leaving a 10-month-old in the car,” Judge Clifford Welsh said before setting Hale’s bond at $10,000. “This is a shocking conduct.”

Kara Hale insisted her husband wasn’t getting a lap dance, adding that he was only waiting for her to finish her set.

“The whole thing with the lap dance is untrue,” she said. “I was there. I know he didn’t get one.”
