The junior college corruption scandal occurred around 2006. It was one of the worst white collar crimes in Alabama’s history. This highly publicized federal probe of the state’s two-year college system sent a lot of people to jail.
Roy Johnson was director at the time. Prosecutors claim he orchestrated one of the most sensational, brazen, flagrant, and pervasive robberies imaginable. Johnson justly was sentenced to ten years in prison and was court ordered to pay back $1.4 million in restitution to the state.
