GREENBELT — Former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson is due in federal court to enter a guilty plea to at least one of the corruption charges he faces.
Online court records show Johnson is scheduled for a plea hearing at noon Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt.
Johnson was indicted in February on charges that he accepted campaign contributions and other gifts in exchange for helping developers secure millions of dollars in federal grant money. He had initially vowed to fight the accusations.
Johnson and his wife, Leslie, were arrested in November after FBI agents listened to a telephone conversation in which he advised her to flush a $100,000 check from a developer down the toilet. A separate criminal case against Leslie Johnson is pending.
