Leslie Johnson Attends Council Meeting Days After Conspiracy Charge

Leslie Johnson attended a County Council meeting Tuesday. It was first scheduled meeting after the court filing last week. But she didn't have much to say to reporters. She refused to answer questions from a group of journalists afterwards.

Leslie Johnson is accused of destroying a $100,000 check authorities say was given to her husband, former County Executive Jack Johnson, by a developer.

The court document filed Friday typically means a defendant is preparing to plead guilty, but there has not been any official word on a plea. Jack Johnson plead not guilty to eight charges in all, including extortion, bribery and conspiracy.

Leslie Johnson is scheduled to appear before a U.S. District Court judge for an arraignment in Greenbelt, Md., on May 4.

The Johnsons were arrested in November, when federal agents doing surveillance observed Jack Johnson allegedly accepting $15,000 from an unnamed developer.
