If convicted, Johnson could face decades in prison. He is currently free on a $2.8 million bond.
On Saturday, The Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/UGd4Ww) that Johnson provided emails, financial statements, photos, and a transcript of a recorded meeting with Swallow to the newspaper. Only one email from Johnson was available on the newspaper's website.
After the Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against Johnson and nine business associates in December 2010, Johnson said he asked Swallow to return part of the $250,000 he had paid. Johnson said he doesn't know if anyone connected to Reid received it.
