The 32-year-old son of a federal judge and Lincoln city councilman was found guilty Tuesday of violating a protection order granted to a woman he is accused of sexually assaulting.

In March, police arrested Jonathan Scott Camp after discovering he sent two text messages over a weekend to a woman he was accused of sexually assaulting in September. 

Officer Katie Flood said that although the texts from Camp's phone weren't rude or threatening, they still violated the protection order. The order was granted on Sept. 11, and lasts a year.

Lancaster County Judge Matt Acton found Camp guilty on Tuesday and set his sentencing hearing for Oct. 16. He faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail for violating the protection order.

Police first arrested Camp on Oct. 8 on a first-degree sexual assault warrant in connection with an incident the woman reported Sept. 9. He is awaiting trial in that case.

The woman told police Camp drugged her with a muscle relaxant at a home in the Country Club area the night before, Officer Lynette Russell said in an affidavit for Camp's initial arrest.

The woman said she fell asleep and woke hours later to find him on top of her, Russell said. A preliminary toxicology report indicated the presence of sedatives in her Sept. 9 urine sample, Russell said in her affidavit.

Camp and the woman know each other.

His parents are Lincoln City Councilman Jon Camp and Chief U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp.
