Wife of ex-PG County Executive Jack Johnson to plead guilty
Posted: 5:36 pm Fri, June 24, 2011
GREENBELT — The wife of former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson is scheduled for a plea hearing next week.
Federal prosecutors announced Friday that Leslie Johnson will appear June 30 at a plea hearing in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt. Johnson was arrested in November on obstruction of justice charges after FBI agents said she tried to flush a $100,000 check from a developer down the toilet and stuff cash in her undergarments.
Johnson had previously signaled her intent to plead guilty, but a plea hearing set for earlier this spring was canceled without explanation.
Her husband pleaded guilty last month to federal corruption charges as part of a sweeping probe into wrongdoing in county government.
