The District of Columbia Court of Appeals has disbarred former Prince Georges County Executive Jack Johnson.
The court concluded that he was convicted of several crimes involving moral turpitude. The crimes involved extortion of property under claim of official right as well as evidence and witness tampering.
The court noted that the crimes were "well publicized" and that there is no need to "delve into the distastful facts" in light of the convictions. (Mike Frisch)
