Albany-- Corporal Lynn Johnson, the school resource officer at Dougherty High, was busted in a prostitution sting Saturday night. He was arrested by the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit when he offered a female undercover cop money for sex. The drug unit conducted the prostitution sting on Cone Street and Leonard Avenue in east Albany.
This is a hot spot for drug activity and prostitution, but undercover agents didn't expect to arrest an Albany police officer in the sting.
"Lynn Johnson, who's a Corporal with the Albany Police Department, made contact with an undercover female officer and propositioned sex for money," said APD Lt. Kenn Singleton.
ADDU stepped in and detained Johnson. "He was arrested and charged with pandering which is a misdemeanor," Singleton said.
Johnson, who's a corporal in the investigative division, works as a school resource officer at Dougherty Comprehensive High School. School officials were shocked to here the news of his arrest. Now, he's future with APD and the school system is unclear. "According to policy, he's one administrative suspension with pay pending the outcome of the investigation," said Singleton.
Johnson is the eighth Albany police officer to be arrested in eight months. In September, APD Police Chief Bobby Johnson resigned, facing termination, for improperly hiring at least one of those officers. Then, several other officers were fired.
The department hoped to clean out all bad officers, but now this arrest is raising more concern about the department. Of course, officer aren't commenting on the arrest. But, Internal affairs is currently investigating the case.
Corporal Lynn Johnson is a 12 year veteran of the Albany Police Department. He's out of jail on bond.
