How the mighty have fallen.

COL James Johnson III, son of a general and a West Point graduate, was destined for stars. Now he may be lucky to keep out of prison. His military career and pension are long gone. Even he knows that.

So does his legion of enemies, made during an Army career where the beady-eyed skinhead didn't hesitate to scream at and dress down officers and enlisted members alike.

THOUGHT HIMSELF "ABOVE THE LAW"

The first day of his court-martial in Kaisersalutern, Germany, the former commanding officer of the 173rd Airborne Combat Team, blinked. Prosecutors had him by the short hairs, so the arrogant and abrasive bird colonel decided to cut his losses. Taking a guilty plea on some of the charges, he hoped to escape with just dismissal from the service and loss of all pay and allowances. Kiss the pension good-bye.

If it had only been about sex, Johnson might have a chance. But thinking he was above the law, he spent thousands of dollars on his live-in gal pal - government money he had no right to waste like he did. That is what might just put him behind bars.

Using govt. cell phones, vehicles and his air travel card to transport his Iraqi playmate, Haveen Al-Atar, is going to be hard for Johnson to get past. His conduct was so outrageous, to let him off with no prison time at all would be sending the wrong message to others.

SPURNED WIFE AND FATHER-IN-LAW DON'T SPEAK

Many times, "different spanks for different ranks" would prevail, but we predict Johnson will get the book thrown at him for embarrassing the Army in such a public way.

Johnson's daddy, retired MAJ GEN James Johnson Jr., was sitting in the courtroom, as was his son's estranged wife Kris and her two children, his grand-children.

Mrs. Johnson was the one to blow the whistle on her adulterous, bigamist husband. There were no words exchanged between her and her father-in-law.

The court-martial continues today. Johnson faces a maximum penalty of 54 years in the slammer. Click on MilitaryCorruption.com all during the day and night to get the latest news.
