A former corrections officer pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal bribery charge for accepting money to bring contraband into the D.C. jail.
Forty-two-year-old April Johnston faces a maximum of 15 years at her sentencing, scheduled for June 3.
She met in her home in September and October 2011 with an undercover agent for the FBI whom she believed was an associate of a jail inmate. Johnston took $2,5000 in bribes and smuggled computer thumb drives into the jail.
She is the second corrections employee at the D.C. jail to plead guilty to a bribery charge in recent months.
