Marion Federal Prison Inmate Gets More Time

Sep 9, 2019

An inmate serving a 25-year sentence at the Marion federal prison will add 18 more years after being convicted of filing fake bankruptcy petitions against federal prison officials, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Kurt Johnson petitioned that the prison warden and a prison officer were indebted to Johnson of 20 billion dollars.

Then Johnson cancelled the $1 billion of the debt and filed the canceled debt as unreported income to the IRS.

Johnson's 18-year sentence will begin in 2028 after he finishes his first sentence.
