Adam Johnson Jailed For Six Years on Child Sex Charges

Former England soccer star Adam Johnson has been jailed for six years after being found guilty of three child sex charges.
Prosecutors told Bradford Crown Court the 28-year-old’s offences were “calculated, considered and carefully orchestrated,” according to a report by the Press Association.
Kate Blackwell QC said the victim, who was 15 at the time, had suffered “severe psychological harm.” In a statement the victim said she’d “entered many dark places” in the past year.
Sacked by English Premier League club Sunderland in the wake of his conviction, Johnson admitted to grooming a girl under the age of 16 and one charge of sexual activity but was found guilty of a further charge he had contested.
They related to an incident in Johnson’s car on January 30, 2015, after he met up with the girl — a Sunderland fan. Police said Johnson initially told them he was unaware of the girl’s true age and claimed he only kissed her.
