Footballer ADAM JOHNSON Jailed For Six Years for Engaging in Sexual Activity With Besotted Teenage Fan

Former England footballer Adam Johnson has been jailed for six years for engaging in sexual activity with a besotted 15-year-old fan.
The then-Sunderland star groomed and then molested the girl in his Range Rover in County Durham last year, leaving his victim with “severe psychological harm”, Judge Jonathan Rose said at Bradford Crown Court today.
Johnson, 28, showed no emotion as he was jailed. The former Sunderland and Manchester City winger admitted one count of sexual activity with a child and one of grooming, before being found guilty of a second allegation of sexual activity by a jury. Johnson stood with his hands behind his back as the judge – who said the girl had “suffered severe psychological harm” – passed sentence. The judge said the victim had been a Sunderland fan who would wait after matches to take pictures of her “favourite player”, Johnson, who had known her age. He said: “That was known to you – to put it another way she had only just turned 15 when you began grooming her, because as you were to admit you found her sexually attractive.” He added that the footballer’s intention had been to engage in sexual activity with her, knowing that she was under 16.
The judge said Johnson had exchanged more than 800 messages with her, which had largely been innocent.
But he added: “You continued in your grooming of this girl even after you were engaged in sexual activity with her. You wanted no-one to know that you and she were exchanging messages.
“You asked her to find a place to meet that was private and secluded so no-one would see you in her company.”
Judge Rose told Johnson the offences happened “at a time when you were engaged in frequent sexual intercourse with multiple partners”.
