Former Prince George’s County councilwoman Leslie Johnson was released from custody last week, ABC7 has learned.

Johnson reported to Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia last March. Her sentence was for 366 days. At the time of her sentencing, ABC7 was told she would be eligible for release after 10 months for good behavior.

Johnson is the wife of former Maryland county executive Jack Johnson. She admitted flushing down the toilet an illicit $100,000 bribe check as FBI agents arrived at the couple's home. She also stuffed nearly $80,000 in her bra. Johnson's husband, former Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson, was sentenced in December 2011 to more than seven years in prison.
