 Jury selection is to begin Monday in Prince George’s County, Md., in suburban D.C.  for a former FBI agent accused of causing a drunken driving crash that killed an 18-year-old in February 2011, the Washington Examiner reports.

Adrian N. Johnson, who was dismissed from the bureau shortly after the accident, faces nine charges, including vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Johnson is accused of driving drunk in Brandywine, Md.,  when his car veered into oncoming traffic and struck a vehicle driven by Lawrence Garner Jr., the Washington Examiner reported.

Johnson, who was off duty at the time, had a blood alcohol content more than three times the legal limit to drive, prosecutors allege.

 

Public Corruption Cases Take Off in Metro Atlanta Under Stronger Enforcement

 An increased focus on public corruption has resulted in a surge in convictions in metro Atlanta, from a county commissioner who swapped a vote in exchange for $30,000 in casino chips to a detention officer who pocketed more than $26,000 by selling drugs at a jail, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The newspaper analyzed federal crime statistics and found a recent spike in public corruption cases.

Other cases involve a former Army captain accused of stealing $2.7 million from the federal government and public officials who allegedly took bribes to approve contracts, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote.

Federal authorities credited the surge to aggressive enforcement, not necessarily a rise in corruption.

Outdated Surveillance Equipment Poses Dangers to U.S. Border Patrol Agents

The Obama administration is placing the lives of U.S. Border Patrol agents at risk by delaying the renewal of outdated surveillance equipment, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Most recently, a faulty ground sensor sent a false alarm to Border Patrol agents who rushed to a remote canyon Oct. 2 and opened fire on each other. One agent was killed, another injured.

The incident has caused concern among federal law enforcement because the network of more than 12,800 ground sensors is deteriorating and in need of updates, the LA Times reported.

That was supposed to happen under a $1.5 billion Arizona Border Surveillance Technology Plan over the next decade, according to the LA Times.

The federal government “must replace outdated sensors with more modern, effective technology that can assist the Border Patrol in securing our borders while not sending agents into the field unnecessarily,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the senior Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee.

Feds Pledge to Crack Down on Marijuana Even if It’s Legalized at the Ballot Box

 The federal government will continue prosecuting marijuana cases even if ballot measures pass in three states to legalize small amounts of pot, a top Justice Department official said.

The warning comes amid criticism that the Obama administration has been largely silent on ballot measures in Colorado, Washington state and Oregon in November. The city of Detroit has a similar measure on its November ballot.

Approving the measures won’t change the Justice Department’s position on marijuana, which is to enforce federal law that ban the plant.

“We’re going to take a look at whether or not there are dangers to the community from the sale of marijuana and we’re going to go after those dangers,” Deputy Attorney General James Cole told “60 Minutes.”
