Disgraced Footballer Gets Six Years For Child Sexual Offences
Footballer and ex-Sunderland player Adam Johnson has been given sex years in prison for “grooming and sexual activity” with a 15-year-old girl (an apparent fan of Johnson during his time at Sunderland). He was arrested in charged back in March of 2015.
Said Judge Jonathan Rose during the proceedings:
She had only just turned 15 when you began grooming her, because, as you were to admit, you found her sexually attractive.
Your standing and your offending are the only reason this child has suffered abuse.
The sexual activity in question reportedly went down back in January of last year while the girl was in Johnson’s Range Rover…he has also used social media apps to “groom” her.
It was also revealed that 1.) Johnson Googled “age of consent” because he wanted to know when it would be legal to have sex with the victim and, even more randomly, 2.) police reportedly found extreme pornography with animals on Johnson’s laptop.
