Jack Johnson Gets 7 Years

The judge ruled yesterday that Johnson would spend 87 months in custody, and then be under three years of supervised release.

In addition, he must pay a $100,000 fine, forfeit $78,000 and an antique Mercedes Benz (reportedly worth about $60,000, according to prosecutors), and undergo alcohol treatment. Since this is a federal sentence, there will be no early release.

During yesterday’s hearing, Johnson’s lawyer argued that he should be spared from any prison time since he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in April. Prosecutors disputed that contention, arguing that Johnson had been seen playing golf shortly after his apparent diagnosis.

Johnson’s wife, Leslie, will be sentenced for her role in the corruption scandal on Friday. It’s probably worth remembering that she was caught with $79,000 in her underwear after having flushed a $100,000 check down the toilet during a raid of the couple’s house.
