    U.S. Marshals Task Force Ends Fugitive's 19 Year Flight from Justice


    August 05, 2010 - Yesterday turned out to be the day that luck ran out for long time fugitive Leslie “Lucky” Johnson, wanted on a federal arrest warrant for failure to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons stemming from his 1991 federal drug case conviction. Johnson, age 52, was apprehended near Pittsburgh, PA by the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force after 19 long years on the run.

      It may take time but most people get caught eventually.  I'm curious to know, how did they find him?  I always get a kick out of that part because it's almost always the result of some cocky, careless slip-up.

    Should anyone go to prison for that?

    Sometimes running from the law can be a prison of its own. Chances are this man did not enjoy the past 19 years as much as a truly free person would.

    Anyone has to be a litle simple to think , if they broke a law or laws and are convicted, that they won't get caught for running ? This is  2010 isn't it?.

        Osama is another story, all together. In country though? Only the ineptitude of law enforcement allows people to stay on the lam for long, although  with all the high tec stuff  you would think they would not be able to.

    I’m not worried, as long as I don’t leave fingerprints on the scotch bottle I’m good.

    Not that I completely understand the law and such, but I thought that after 7 years any charges brought against you were dropped, with the exception of murder?

    Statue of limitations or something like that.

      Statuate of limitatons varies from state to state and law to law, murder for instance has no limitations in time in some states, seven years ,  never heard that one though....

    He's been running for 19 years and now he's 52, I guess that means he'll die in the slammer.
