High Profile Maryland Disbarment

The Maryland Court of Appeals has ordered the disbarment of former Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson.

The Baltimore Sun reported:'

Former Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson was sentenced...to more than seven years in federal prison after admitting to a wide-ranging pattern of corruption that permeated virtually every level of county government from health to housing and law enforcement to liquor laws.

Johnson, a 62-year-old Democrat, was arrested on extortion, bribery and evidence tampering charges in November 2010 while serving out the final weeks of his eight years as the leader of Maryland's second-most populous county.
