For Jack Johnson, two more weeks on the outside

Jack Johnson, the former Prince George’s County executive who pleaded guilty last year in a federal corruption probe, will have two more weeks of freedom.

Johnson, 62, was scheduled to turn himself in Feb. 3, but the federal Bureau of Prisons hasn’t completed its evaluation and placement plans for Johnson, who is expected to serve his seven-year term at the Butner federal prison in North Carolina, where fellow prisoners will include financier Bernard Madoff.

U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte granted Johnson a 15-day extension until Feb. 18.
