Jack Johnson, Former Prince George’s Exec, to be Released from Federal Custody

Former Prince George’s County Executive Jack B. Johnson is slated to be released soon from federal custody after serving more than five years on corruption charges.

Johnson, 68, who served as county executive from 2002 until December 2010, pleaded guilty in 2011 to evidence tampering and other charges in a case where he was accused of being the mastermind. Prosecutors said he received more than $1 million in bribes.

His wife, Leslie Johnson, was also implicated and served time.

He was moved late last year from the Cumberland prison to a halfway house in Baltimore. Johnson will be on supervised release for three years, according to a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
