Jack Johnson Sentencing Delayed
WI Web Staff Report | 8/5/2011, 4:14 p.m.
Sentencing for former Prince George's County executive Jack Johnson has been moved from Sept. 15 to Dec. 6. No reason has been reportedly given for the delay.
Johnson, 62, of Mitchellville, Md., pleaded guilty in May to a string of charges in a pay-to-play scheme that prosecutors said he engaged in for most of the time he was at the helm of county government from 2002 to 2010.
Johnson, who was arrested last November alongside his wife, former District 6 County Council member Leslie Johnson, faces up to 13 years in prison.
The couple was taken into custody following an FBI sting at their home.
Leslie Johnson, 59, pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to commit witness and evidence tampering. She resigned her post on July 31 from the Council after serving just eight months. She faces sentencing in October.
