Johnson was sentenced on Wednesday to 87 months in federal prison after the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ordered a lower court to do it over, according to a report by FOX13. The court sided with Johnson on issues surrounding loss in the fraud case that he was convicted in.
Johnson was originally sentenced to 135 months and has been in federal prison since 2016.
