Former Boro Officer Is Denied Parole



by Amanda Jones

A former police officer will remain in jail beyond his minimum sentence after his parole was denied during a hearing held Tuesday at the Cameron County Courthouse.

Francis Paul Johnson, age 53, of Weedville, who formerly served as an officer with the Emporium Borough Police Department had his request for early release denied during a parole hearing.

Johnson, who had earned rank as Sergeant prior to his dismissal from the force upon his conviction, has served just over 10 months of his mandated 10 to nearly 24-month sentence that was imposed in February of 2017.
