David Johnson Speaks

NBC New York caught David Johnson coming out of the Bronx Courthouse, and the embattled body man agreed to take a few questions.

“I will be vindicated,” said Mr. Johnson, the suspended driver to Governor Paterson, who now finds himself at the center of two scandals involving his longtime aide. “I’ve been a dedicated public servant to the community for over 15 years despite the other allegations that are out there,” he said.

“The most important thing to remember is that criminal charges were never brought in this case,” said Mr. Johnson’s attorney, Oscar Michelen. “Even thought the police did come to the apartment that night, after they spoke to the complainant, seeing no evidence of a crime they did not arrest or attempt to arrest Mr. Johnson.”
