Johnson is serving his probationary sentence at the Patten Probation and detention Center in Lanier County, where he was taken last week.
Sylvester City Attorney Tommy Coleman said in a letter to Sylvester officials that Johnson's case was referred under the First Offender Act. That allows him to not be judged guilty, but to serve probation, and pay a fine.
Once he clears these terms, his record will be cleared, and he is still allowed to serve in elected office. He continues in that roll now.
