Ex-corrections officer sentenced for bribery
Monday - 7/29/2013, 8:00pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A former corrections officer has been sentenced to three months in jail for accepting money to smuggle contraband into a Washington jail.
Forty-two-year-old April Johnston was also sentenced to six months of home detention in federal court in Washington on Monday.
Johnston had pleaded guilty to bribery. According to government evidence, Johnston, a corrections officer at the District of Columbia Jail, had agreed to smuggle contraband into the jail to an inmate.
Johnston was put in contact with someone she believed was an associate the inmate but who was an undercover FBI agent.
Prosecutors say Johnston met the agent, received $1,000 and a computer thumb drive, which she then smuggled into the facility.
