Ex-Councilwoman Johnson Gets Delay Of Sentencing

WASHINGTON (AP) — A sentencing hearing for former Prince George’s County Councilwoman Leslie Johnson has been delayed.

Leslie Johnson pleaded guilty in June to destroying evidence in a federal corruption probe that also ensnared her husband, former County Executive Jack Johnson. She was scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 13, but a judge granted a delay. A new date was not set.

Johnson’s attorney, Shawn Wright, filed a motion in federal court in Greenbelt on Monday seeking the delay “in light of
scheduling conflicts that have recently come about.”

Wright wrote that she had discussed the motion with the government’s lead prosecutor, and that he does not oppose the request.

      Make sure you post the same type of reply when the person convicted is white. I love the ignorance of some of the people here in Baltimore.

        MD Citizen – you’re above whatever “Sylvan Finkelstein” is posting on here as worthless typings. Sylvan, or whomever he or she really is, loves to just stir the pot. At the end of the day, he or she loves to create issues when in fact, he or she is part of the problem.

        As far as the issues of the councilwoman, allow the legal process to have it’s time – however, if you have been already convicted, why would you need a delay in the sentencing? I’m not sure I understand it – what kind of scheduling conflict could there be?

  • Mike

    She plead guilty now it is time to take the punishment.
    No delays!!!!!
    Put the B!tch in jail

  • Debbie

    She didn’t have any “scheduling confilcts” when the date was set. No delays should be granted. This crook needs to be in jail. This is just a ploy to delay her reporting to jail.

      You must still be upset because your mother and father are brother and sister.

    • Billiam

      Stop being a troll – if you have nothing to lend to this – please stop showing your ignorance and stupidity. Tell Sylvan hello.

    I wonder if she’s a real blonde. She could’nt make it to the courthouse due to slamming her tail in the door

  • FedUP

    this is the one that was told by her crook husband over the phone to throw a check for some huge sum down the toilet before the feds crashed through the door of their mansion. Its just a small crook in a much larger operation that probably sprawls all over DC MD VA and beyond. They are all criminals and I want to know how their kind keeps getting elected? Is it fixed elections or just a stupid, dumb and blind electorate?
