HBO producer Marc Henry Johnson admitted to removing the body of a mother who had overdosed inside his friend's Manhattan apartment.
The 52-year-old pled guilty to accessory after the fact, admitting he dragged the body of Kiersten Cerveny into the hallway of his friends apartment last October. Cerveny, 38, was a doctor and mother-of-three from Long Island.

Cerveny was found dead in the doorway of the apartment building after a night of partying with Johnson, which included heavy drinking and cocaine use. U.S. Attorney Joon H Kim issued a statement saying, "Marc Henry Johnson's immediate response to seeing a dying overdose victim should have been to summon help."
Kim also said, "Instead, Johnson helped his cocaine dealer cover up the drug crime by moving the victim's body."

Thanks to a plea deal, Johnson faces up to 24 months in prison instead of what could have been 10 years. The alleged dealer, James Holder, pled guilty in December and is expected to be sentenced in May for maintaining a drug-involved premises.
Johnson's latest project was a pilot episode he produced with actress Maggie Gyllenhaal for the upcoming HBO series "The Deuce," starring James Franco.
