Calif. Lawyer Gets 4 Months, Is Fined $10K, for Using Another Attorney's ID on Passport Application

A longtime California family lawyer has been sentenced to four months in federal prison and fined $10,000 for using another lawyer’s social security number and a fake state identification card in a 2009 effort to get a U.S. passport.

Warren David Camp, 47, is a Canadian citizen. A family law practitioner, he was admitted in California in 1991 and has no attorney disciplinary record, according to the Desert Sun and Palm Desert Patch.

He pleaded guilty in April to making a false statement in a passport application.

A L.A. Now post and a press release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California earlier this year provide additional details.

None of the articles offers any explanation for Camp’s actions. His law office phone has been disconnected and he could not be reached for comment late Monday, the Desert Sun reported.
