Justin Johnson, one of the men charged in the murder of the late Young Dolph, recently pleaded guilty to federal violations, according to Action News 5. In a hearing on Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to not being regularly employed, missing mandatory drug screenings and therapy sessions, failing to seek permission before leaving the jurisdiction, and being arrested.

The last two violations are related to Justin’s January arrest, which resulted in local charges being filed against him in the Dolph case. As we reported Justin, aka Straight Drop, was arrested by U.S. Marshals after a vehicle he was traveling in was stopped in Indiana. Justin, who was on the run for over one month, was hit with various charges related to Dolph’s death. The charges include first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, and theft of property worth $10,000–$60,000.

Cornelius Smith is also being charged with first-degree murder for Dolph’s death, while Shundale Barnett, who was apprehended with Justin, was charged with after-the-fact accessory to first-degree murder. Justin was the only suspect who appeared in court and a federal judge said he was “bitterly disappointed” in Justin during the hearing. Judge Mark Norris said the 23-year-old “squandered the opportunities the court gave him.”
