Circumstances of the Case
Johnson is accused of being a pimp/human trafficker who exploits women and children for financial gain. The victims are required to turn over all payment they receive for sex acts from sex purchasers to their pimp.
In January 2012, Johnson is accused of meeting 16-year-old Jane Doe #1 at a concert in Sacramento and getting involved in a sexual relationship with the victim. Approximately two days later, Johnson is accused of picking up Jane Doe #1 at her home and exploiting her as a prostitute on the streets in Sacramento for two weeks. The defendant is accused of collecting the victim’s payments she earned from engaging in commercial sex.
The defendant is accused of having Jane Doe #1 work as a prostitute in Oakland, Chatsworth, and Lake Forest. The defendant is also accused of having 22-year-old Jane Doe #2 work as a prostitute throughout various cities in Northern California.
The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) learned of Jane Doe #1’s disappearance and possible involvement in human trafficking through the Innocence Lost Project. The FBI and Anaheim Police Department (APD) organized a covert operation at a hotel in Lake Forest after contacting Jane Doe #1 through an online advertisement on a website known for prostitution.
The Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) filed charges against Johnson on July 26, 2013. APD, FBI, and the Hayward Police Department arrested Johnson in Hayward on July 28, 2013.
If convicted, Johnson’s lifetime sex offender registration bars him from entering County recreational areas and City parks which have passed the Sex Offender Ordinance.
