According to the indictment, Johnson allegedly had sexual contact with the inmate on four separate occasions from April 2016 through November 2016. The indictment also alleges that Johnson’s conduct resulted in bodily injury to the victim and included aggravated sexual abuse.

Johnson appeared for an arraignment today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Linda R. Anderson. The case is scheduled for trial before Chief U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III on August 19, 2019 in Jackson.

If convicted of the charges against him, Johnson faces a maximum penalty of life in federal prison.

The public is reminded that an indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
