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.
