Charges – Arrested
A Michigan state soccer recruit has been charged with threatening to post a video of an underage girl performing a sexual act with him if she refused his advances, police said.
The video was allegedly recorded when the victim was 15 and Johnson was 17, according to a police report obtained Thursday by the Detroit Free Press.
Johnson is accused of threatening to post the images on social media in an attempt to “damage the reputation” of the girl, whose father contacted police on Wednesday, according to the newspaper.
Johnson had previously visited the girl’s home and asked her to meet him outside. The girl complied with Johnson’s request and said she asked her to kiss him, according to the police report.
After denying that advance, he returned to her home and “received a video of her performing oral sex acts” with Johnson via text message, as well as a threat to post it online, police said.
The three-star recruit from Venice High School in Florida tweeted in November that he intended to commit to MSU. Earlier this month, Johnson said he planned to attend the team’s spring game on April 24, just five days before his arrest, according to jail records.
Johnson has been released from custody after posting bail, online records show. It is unclear if he has retained an attorney who can comment on the charges he faces.
A Michigan state spokesman told the Detroit News that the university’s sports department was aware of Johnson’s arrest and was monitoring the situation.
Johnson, of Venice, Florida, is listed as 6 feet 2 inches and weighs 185 pounds on jail records. He had 10 offers to play college football and also runs track, according to 247Sports.com.
