BY: - February 17, 2020

Patrick Egan, who represents Johnson, 46, said that William McSwain, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, did the right thing when he recused himself from the trial of Johnson and his wife, Dawn Chavous, 40. McSwain recused himself because he was once a partner at the law firm of Feagre Drinker Biddle & Reath, where Chavous’ attorney, Barry Gross, is a partner.
