Prince George’s County Executive Comments on the Sentencing of Jack Johnson

 

 

Tuesday, former Prince George's County executive Jack Johnson was sentenced to 87 months in federal prison. He must pay a $100,000 fine which 37,000 of that is due in February. He is also required to serve 3 years of probation after he completes his prison term.

His prison term will begin in January. 

 

The following statement by current Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker was sent to us by Scott Peterson:

 

 

In wake of the sentencing of former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III, released the following statement: 

 

“My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Johnson and his family.  As you can imagine, this has been a very difficult time for our County.  We have worked hard over the last year to restore pride and confidence in the government with our residents, County employees and the business community.  I believe that we have made good progress, making it clear that this County is moving forward.  I also want to thank our County employees who have done a fabulous job delivering service and for being incredible professionals through this ordeal.

 

Any future developments that arise from this case will be examined and investigated by the Prince George’s County government.  Yes we are moving forward, but I will not tolerate any person or entity slowing down our march to greatness. 

 

Our accomplishments are many, but I believe that our greatest accomplishment was coming together during one of our darkest hours and emerging a stronger and more focused County.  We got better despite the situation and successfully improved the future of healthcare with the hospital MOU, created the $50 million EDI Fund to spur economic growth, reduced overall crime and we made education a top priority of this administration. 

 

It was one year ago today that I took office.  Since day one, I have been focused on the future of this County and not the past.  Today’s events have not changed my focus one bit and I will continue to work tirelessly to make this County the best it can be.”
