Former Soccer Player Johnson Jailed for Six Years

English soccer player Adam Johnson was jailed for six years on Thursday (March 24), after being found guilty of sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl earlier this month.

Johnson, who was sacked by Premier League club Sunderland after he was found guilty, showed no emotion as he was sentenced by Judge Jonathan Rose.

The 28-year-old winger, who has played 12 times for England, had admitted kissing and grooming the teenager at the beginning of his trial but had denied two more serious accusations of sexual activity.

A jury at Bradford Crown Court in northern England cleared him of one of these charges but convicted him of the other.

Sunderland sacked Johnson after he entered his guilty pleas but the club has been criticized for not taking action sooner. Sportswear firm Adidas also cancelled its boot contract with the midfielder after his guilty pleas.
