ANNAPOLIS, MD. (CBS-DC/AP) — The Maryland Court of Appeals has disbarred former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson.
The court issued an order disbarring Johnson on Friday.
Johnson was sentenced to more than seven years in prison last month for extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from developers and accepting assorted gifts.
His scheme fell apart last year when federal agents raided his home in Mitchellville.
Johnson was the county executive from 2002 until 2010.
