Adam Johnson Sentenced To 6 Years In Jail – Former Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has been sentenced to 6 years in prison after being found guilty.
Johnson was found guilty of grooming and sexual activity with a 15-year old girl. According to Judge Jonathan Rose, engaged with sexual activity with her knowing she was below 16, abusing her trust and causing her severe psychological harm.
“She had only just turned 15 when you began grooming her, because, as you were to admit, you found her sexually attractive,” Judge Rose said.
Prosecutors had claimed Johnson’s actions were “calculated, considered and carefully orchestrated,” but the former Manchester City star has reportedly appealed the conviction.
