Earle Alderman Sentenced to Home Detention for Lying to Grand Jury

NOVEMBER 12, 2004 - Posted at 7:58 CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - An Earle alderman has been sentenced to six months of home detention for lying last year to a federal grand jury investigating voter fraud in Crittenden County.

A federal jury found six-term alderman Lee Johnson guilty of the felony in June.  The 46-year-old Johnson is to be electronically monitored during the sentence.

Johnson originally faced six charges , but prosecutors agreed not to pursue the outstanding counts if Johnson agreed to not appeal his conviction.

Johnson's attorney, Michael Booker of Little Rock, said his client's acceptance of the sentence does not mean Johnson admits lying to the grand jury.
