Adam Mark Johnson
Adam Mark Johnson has been convicted of one count of unlawful sexual connection in January 2013, and one count of indecent assault in late 1996 or early 1997. The two counts were to be heard separately. He was found guilty of the 2013
count after a jury trial at the Napier District Court. He then changed his plea in relation to the 1996/1997 count and pleaded guilty to an amended count of indecently assaulting a girl under 12 a short time before trial.
At the time of the first offending in 1996/1997 Mr Johnson was 14 years old. He had been babysitting a close relative, and persuaded her that he would allow her to stay up late if she let him touch her. He placed his fingers on her vagina and rubbed the outside and inside of her vagina. After he finished he told her not to tell anyone as it was “our secret”.
The second offending occurred approximately 16 years later when Mr Johnson was 30 years old and had children. The second victim was six years old. Following a family barbeque it was agreed that the victim would sleep over at Mr Johnson’s house because she was enjoying spending time with his son. The victim had a bedwetting problem and a mattress protector was put on the bed. Once the children had gone to sleep Mr Johnson came into the bedroom and sat on the victim’s bed. He asked her if she had wet the bed. She said that she had wet her shorts a little bit. Mr Johnson then removed the shorts and asked her to come into his room while the shorts dried. He took her through to his room and sat her on his bed and proceeded to stroke the victim’s vagina. He curled his fingers into her vagina and moved them “a little bit”. The victim became very embarrassed and uncomfortable and told Mr Johnson that she thought her shorts would be dry and that she should return to bed. She put her shorts on and returned to her bedroom.
