Two weeks after former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson began serving an 87-month prison sentence, he continues to draw a paycheck for work he did while in office.
A Prince George’s County spokesperson confirmed that Johnson, who last year pleaded guilty to conspiracy, extortion and witness evidence tampering charges, is receiving $50,000 annually from a pension fund.
Due to a loophole in state law, Johnson is set to receive the pension for life, according to reports.
