WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson, who pleaded guilty last year in a federal corruption investigation, will have two more weeks of freedom.

Johnson was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from developers and accepting assorted gifts. He was scheduled to turn himself in on Friday, but the federal Bureau of Prisons says it hasn’t completed its evaluation or finalized plans on where to send him.

Johnson is expected to serve his sentence at the Butner federal prison in North Carolina.

U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte granted Johnson an extension until Feb. 18.

    I wonder how many PG county idiots thought he was so great. I know many who work in governmet jobs in PG County and they always said Jack Johnson did not deserve to be Ststes Attorney let alone County Executive. Hmm guess they were right.
