Johnson’s lawyer, Elizabeth Daley, said in a court filing that Johnson did not physically assault or coerce the girls and suggested a sentence of just over 11 years in prison would be sufficient.

Prosecutors said Johnson was convicted in 2018 of luring and attempting to sexually abuse a minor and was placed on state supervision in August 2022. He also allegedly violated the terms of his release, including changing his address without permission and failing to complete sex offender and substance abuse treatment.
