DCPS guard bribery update

Remember those two guards shaking down the proprietor of an illegal parking lot? They've plead guilty.
Shawn Armstead and Shawn Johnson, both 37 years old and from Laurel, Md., pleaded guilty Tuesday. They face up to 15 years in prison at sentencing on Jan. 5, but are likely get more than two years in prison.

Prosecutors say the security officers discovered the for-profit parking scheme in July. The parking operation was running for events both on and off school property. Records show the guards demanded bribes of at least $1,500 over two months to keep quiet and let the parking operation continue.
