A developer who pleaded guilty to bribing former Prince George's County Executive Jack B. Johnson before cooperating with authorities was sentenced to 18 months in prison on Thursday.
But he was later paid $1.2 million from a nonprofit organization that bought the majority of control over the property from him, Mr. Copperthite said.
"When Mr. Baig was approached, he immediately began to cooperate," said Assistant U.S. Attorney A. David Copperthite. "He did put himself at risk very early on."
