Prosecutors say former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson has plenty of money to pay a $100,000 extortion fine before he heads to prison.
Prosecutors for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland say Johnson has nearly $212,000 in cash that could be used to pay the fine.
Johnson was sentenced in December to more than seven years in prison for extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from developers and accepting assorted gifts.
He is scheduled to turn himself in on Saturday.
