Police who arrested Adam Johnson found ANIMAL PORN and STI medicine stash at his home

Summing up today, Miss Blackwell added: “This is not a fleeting contact or a fleeting offence, an isolated episode of messages with (victim). These offences were calculated, considered and carefully orchestrated.


“The Crown says he continues to present a risk to those in the victim’s position.”

The prosecutor also told the court that Johnson had a history of meeting girls for sex, describing it as a “clandestine habit”.

A report from Dr Hockley who spoke to Adam Johnson ahead of today’s sentencing explained he saw his victim as “just another girl, just another opportunity” to have sex.

He added that Johnson told him he “put her age out of his mind”, as he thought she had the appearance of a young woman rather than a child.

Orlando Pownall QC, defending, asked the court to be “proportionate” in sentencing and said the counsel “does not seek to quibble” over what the prosecution has put to the court.

He also asked the judge not to get “carried away” when sentencing.

But the judge concluded his young victim had suffered “severe psychological harm” because of his actions.

He sentenced the former England player to six years in prison for grooming and sexual activity with a child.

A restraining order has been put against him to prevent him from contacting his victim, and the 28-year-old must sign the Sex Offenders register for life.

The footballer must also pay £50,000 towards the total prosecution costs, which came to £67,000.
