Former Prince George's County executive Jack Johnson is due in court Tuesday, where he's scheduled to be arraigned on federal charges.
We're sure you all remember Johnson's memorable exchange with his wife, Leslie, during their arrest, but in case you've forgotten the other details of this case, a refresher is after the jump.
• Jack Johnson is the former Prince George's County executive. He and his wife Leslie, a Prince George's Council member, were both caught in a federal corruption probe last year.
An indictment alleges that Jack Johnson took bribes from a local liquor store owner and developers. A federal probe of the alleged pay-to-play took years to complete.
• According to the indictment, investigators believe Jack Johnson accepted thousands of dollars in bribes. In exchange, he helped the developers secure federal grant funding.
The indictment indicates that the Johnson arrests were part of a larger probe of the county's government.
• Jack Johnson and his wife, Leslie, were arrested in November, accused of tampering with and destroying evidence.
Leslie Johnson was found with thousands of dollars stuffed in her undergarments when she was searched by FBI agents. Authorities also believe she flushed a $100,000 check before they entered the Johnson home in Mitchellville.
What's Happened Since the Arrest
• Leslie Johnson has repeatedly asked a judge to reschedule a preliminary hearing in her case. Earlier this month, she said needed more time to investigate the allegations.
• Jack Johnson was indicted earlier this year.
• According to the Washington Post, the son of Jack and Leslie Johnson, Jack B. Johnson Jr., landed a job in the county's government. Go figure.
