Former Paterson Aide Pleads Guilty to Harassment Charges

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

The one-time aide of former Governor David Paterson pleaded guilty to one count of harassment stemming from a 2009 domestic violence case.

David Johnson's guilty plea will spare him jail time. He was accused of grabbing, choking and threatening his former girlfriend, Sherr-Una Booker.

Johnson underwent therapy approved by the prosecutors and told the judge that he knew his behavior was inappropriate and said he deeply regretted his behavior.

Media reports revealed that Paterson contacted Booker in the days after the incident and may have tried to influence her. Paterson was cleared of wrongdoing.
