Washington Post (Feb. 17, 2012)-Johnson, 62, who pleaded guilty last year in a wide-ranging federal corruption probe, is scheduled to be admitted to the federal prison complex in Butner, N.C., no later than Saturday, according to Jeffrey Harding, one of Johnson’s attorneys. It will begin his seven year sentence. Harding would not say exactly when his client expected to report.
Johnson is expected to serve his sentence in Butner’s low-security prison camp or, if necessary, the prison hospital. He will have substantial freedom of movement in the camp, the least confining of Butner’s four facilities.
