Commander to Prison - Maybe

  • A former Chicago police commander who earned praise for overseeing big reductions in violence in the Englewood community pleaded guilty Tuesday to stealing more than $360,000 in Social Security payments intended for his mother that he continued to collect after her death 25 years ago.

    In all, Kenneth Johnson admitted to bilking the Social Security Administration out of $363,064 from the time of his mother’s death in May 1994 to November 2017, when the scheme was uncovered, according to his plea agreement with prosecutors.

    Preliminary guidelines call for Johnson to be sentenced to up to about two years in prison for the felony conviction on one count of theft of government funds. U.S. District Judge Manish Shah set sentencing for Sept. 11.
Missing from the article is any mention of paying back the $363,000 he stole from taxpayers. Hopefully that's addressed at sentencing? After all, he'll be collecting his pension seeing as how the crime isn't related to his city service.

Shouldn't take him long to pay it all back.

Great pick again though Special Ed. You sure have to seem at least as many people going to jail or retiring under investigation as previous superintendents.

I always wonder just how the heck someone could think they could get away with this. Social Security screwed us over when my mother died; they cleaned out her deposit account, good luck getting the excess back. With this in mind I assume there is more to this case than SSA overlooking a TWENTY YEAR overage. Has to be someone on the inside, likely that was covering for the good commander. Said 'friend' either retired, dropped dead or both and now The clown prince is basically getting 180,000 a year(plus room and board) for 2 years at Club Fed. Life is Tough for the connected, cough

This needs to be put in a more Blunt fashion: This Thief, who likes expensive cars, paid for with stolen funds, will get a pension of over $100,000 a year for the REST OF HIS LIFE! JUST THINK ABOUT THAT TAXPAYERS, AND OTHER COPS! Less than 25% of all the citizens in Illinois get any form of pension, but if you pay taxes you will be paying for this chunk of shit, for the rest of his life! And coppers, who are constantly being told that their pension fund is in trouble, and retirees who had medical coverage manipulated; this Political Hack will be living well, for the rest of his life, while you struggle to provide healthcare for you and your family. IF THERE WAS EVER AN EXAMPLE OF WHY THE GOLD BRAID PENSION SHOULD BE SEPARATE FROM OUR PENSION THIS IS IT! SINCE EXEMPT MEMBERS ARE THE CREATION OF POLITICIANS; THEN LET THEIR PENSIONS BE FROM THE FUND THAT PAYS ALDERCREATURES! OR, LET EVERYONE RECEIVE A PENSION BASED ON THEIR LAST NON-EXEMPT POLICE RANK. This former Commander will continue to rip-off the public and other coppers for the rest of his life, if he gets a pension, despite his conviction! Stay Safe! Baby "G"

Some communities view social security as another "free" entitlement. Being surrounded by a community that collects checks for doing nothing is the norm. It is so easy to get caught up this way of life. Have you ever noticed how many children have ADD, asthma, high blood pressure, bi-polar and the like? These qualifying afflictions like so many adults entitles them to a non-revocable lifetime S.S.I. disability check.

In defense of Commander Johnson, everyone else is doing it so why shouldn't he get caught up in the hysteria. The bigger question is, How did this go unnoticed for so long? This best and brightest man risen to the rank of commander has been an active contributor to a monthly comstat managerial review which is numbers based. Lots of numerical accounting gimmicks, personal responsibility and accountability. He has to know how to review the books, question entries and keep the digits in order.

And for government specifically the social security administration, how many more Commander Johnsons are collecting fraudulent checks? Looks like Johnson stepped on his johnson and is taking the weight of his case. A case study for government accountability on so many levels.

That's it? Less than two years in prison? It almost makes it seem worth it to any observer. Maybe people will be afraid to commit crimes, (any crimes) when they see perps get sentenced to Looong sentencing. And then have to fulfill those terms. If this joker continues to receive a pension he will make almost enough to pay the entire sum back while he's there.

Where's the justice??? This guy manipulated the public trust for his own benefit, and gets a slap on the wrist.

They just reward their cronies with that fat gold braided pension, while most struggle and get promoted legit if they can get a good test score without a super secret study group. Guess what, Lt is as high as you will go sorry. Then you will be stuck there watching the parade of assholes get put in exempt spots after being a LT for 10 min. So whats next?

This is true. My father drove a truck for 30 years. He was diagnosed with cancer, had surgery, and was disabled after that. He went to SS office to apply for disability and was denied, being told by the worker he could get a job at Mc Donald’s. Sitting around the facility were numerous young ghetto dwellers in apparently good physical condition. My father told the SS worker that none of these so and so’s paid a penny into SS but you will approve them. Winds up he had to hire a lawyer and on day of hearing the judge scolded SS people and told them “you better have a check for this man today.” Such a scam the whole system is.

Why doesn't the CPD pay street police, particularly officers on afternoons and midnights a bonus. Compare working deadly hellholes like 011 and 007 with the officers working inside and/or days in HQ or "Mayberry" (020).

In almost all cases, if a Social Security recipient dies, the funeral home handles the notifications to Social Security by the use of a form so that the benefits stop. It happens every day. Is any reporter going to dig down and pull the 1994 obituary to find out how and why the funeral home did NOT notify Social Security and whether Mr. Johnson had anything to do with that aspect of this case.

Frank Johnson apparently fooled the Social Security Administration with the impersonation in 2013. But he admits a similar attempt in 2017 failed and "his scheme unraveled.

yeah, he's going to have to do some time. The length of the fraud is a killer for him, even though the amount of money is rather low for the federal sentencing guidelines. Restitution is mandatory and will be ordered at the time of sentencing. There is the possibility of a fine but that is pretty unlikely unless he is rich. Had a doctor who defrauded medicaid (but also who obstructed justice and he got 13 mos, restitution and a 200k fine. My guess is he gets like 18 mos.

This is small time. But he will probably get probation and get to keep the proceeds of the crime.

Money manager Stephen Walsh was just released from club fed after 5 years. He was sentenced to 20 for stealing $500,000,000. He had pay back $50,000,000. So $450,000,000 for five years in club fed.

So who would do a week or three at club fed to have enough to retire? It's only $246,575 per day.

Is this news to anyone else? Mendoza is withholding pass through $$ to the city because it didn't fund our pension and two others. Congratulations to whoever figured out this play.

The complaint centers on decisions made by the Office of Comptroller Susana Mendoza to intercept and hold grant money the city said it is due to receive from various state agencies.

The complaint does not specify how much money the city believes the comptroller’s office has intercepted to date.

According to the lawsuit, the comptroller’s actions followed notices of “final determination” submitted in March and April by three pension funds which manage retirement funds for Chicago city workers, including police officers. According to the complaint, city believes the pension funds have told the comptroller City Hall has shorted its contributions to the three pension funds by a total of about $23.1 million, which could trigger an embargo on state funds to the city.

Under state law, the comptroller is required to intercept and hold any payments being made by the state to a municipality, if one of the municipality’s pension funds reports the local government has failed to fund its pensions at the levels set by law.

In almost all cases, if a Social Security recipient dies, the funeral home handles the notifications to Social Security by the use of a form so that the benefits stop. It happens every day. Is any reporter going to dig down and pull the 1994 obituary to find out how and why the funeral home did NOT notify Social Security and whether Mr. Johnson had anything to do with that aspect of this case.

5/15/2019 09:30:00 AM

I know a widow who was so concerned they'd corner her for fraud based on the day her husband died (deposit coming to account), she was on hold on the phone with Social Security within 3 hours of her husbands death. I don't think the funeral directors everywhere follow the policy and sometimes, they get it wrong.

Just a damn minute, SCC. there was no way for anyone looking over Kenny J for an exempt spot to discover that he was stealing his mother's social security. Face it, Kenny was, like him or not, an effective commander and manager of his troops in 007. Despise his blatant thievery at the trough of public assistance monies after his mother was long dead, but he was probably one of the better choices Eddie J made when promoting people to the exempt ranks.
And yes, his pension checks should go straight into the social security coffers until Kenny has made good on restitution.

https://www.jobsforfelonshub.com/felons-forfeit-pension-benefits/

Why Benefits are Denied

With that being said, each case’s facts must be carefully scrutinized before benefits are denied. A commonly litigated aspect of this law is whether or not a felony arose as the result of public service.For instance, one case that was appealed in 2001 involved a Chicago police lieutenant who had been convicted of mail fraud and was denied benefits from his pension fund. In this instance, the court found that the officer’s conviction was associated with his duty as a police officer.

Because the officer knew about the fraud and did not report it, but, instead, participated in the activity, his benefits weredenied. However, that does not mean that felons cannot receive the monies they paid into a fund.

The IGNOBLE Chicago Report:
Kenneth and Kevin Johnson came from a family of clouted, politically heavy people active in city and county government.
They have an older brother who was an OPS supervisor
A sister that was a warden for the county and IDOC.
Their mother worked in city government for Mayors Washington and Daley.
Their ascension in CPD was preordained.
Let's see if that clout will get Kenneth Johnson a favorable prison sentence disposition.
The attendances at funeral services for their sister was under attended and represented by both CPD and the county, despite their heavy duty duty clout.
That's saying something.
