How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Station Posts FBI Recording of County Exec. Telling Wife to Destroy Evidence As Agents Pound on Door

Jack Johnson/wusa

Considering he was once the top prosecutor for a prominent suburban county just outside D.C., Jack B. Johnson was not such a smart crook and shakedown artist.

Johnson was arrested by the FBI late last year while in his final weeks in office as county executive of Prince George’s County on charges of taking more than $400,000 in bribes. He was recorded by the FBI on a tense phone call with his wife Leslie, who was home at the time when two FBI agents knocked at the front door. He was advising her to hide incriminating evidence including wads of cash. In May, he pleaded guilty in federal court, and sentencing is set for Dec. 6.

Channel 4 in Washington posted on its website the recordings, which are fascinating to listen to.

Below is the recording.
