Adam Johnson jailed for six years: Disgraced ex-Sunderland star sent down

24 Mar

After passing the jail term, the judge orderered Johnson to pay £50,000 of the prosecution’s £67,132 costs.

That’s less than the £60k a week Johnson was earning in his Sunderland days.

Judge Rose said: “You continued in your grooming of this girl even after you were engaged in sexual activity with her.

“You wanted no-one to know that you and she were exchanging messages.

“You asked her to find a place to meet that was private and secluded so no-one would see you in her company.

“You made a deliberate decision to engage in sexual activity with this young girl, no doubt in the expectation that you would get away with it.

“Your future as a professional footballer must be in doubt.”
