He better go to prison for this. But they will probably cut a money deal with the parents and by doing that would make the little girl technically a prostitute.

What is wrong with people? Not enough money to take a private jet out to Nevada and "hire" a girl that looks 15? At least it would be legal

Sound like a lack of "personal responsibility." How much might he pay to redeem himself? I hope it is everything but that never happens to these types.

Obviously, this is not just a family matter, but a matter of public safety. This perv Johnson is a sex offender and is a threat to the general public.

Gotta ask. Wasn't there a republican governor candidate named Jon Grunseth who had started down this same road? A nice family values type who thought he had everyone fooled. Not sure whatever happened to him.

Let's see who gets more time: this billionaire or the county employee who didn't actually do anything except chat.

Leave it to a socialist urban liberal to mix and match with class warfare. If Johnson is convicted yes he will do a LOT of time. They locked Petters up for fraud for 50 years. Do yourself a favor and drop the socialist/communist "rich is bad, worker good" routine.

Yes, I wonder the same thing but I would venture to guess if you're really F 'd in the head you just do it where you are.

It sounds as if his family booted him out of the family business quite sime time ago. Funny the Pioneer Press did not mention in this story that his brother-in-law owns the Minnesota Wild.

We know the proclivity to abuse children sexually spans all races, religions, political ideology, everything. They should put all these people away somewhere that they can't escape.

Is this guy related to WI Sen. Ron Johnson? Regardless, this geezer will probably explain away his transgressions by claiming he was the helpless victim of a hereditary sense of absolute class entitlement.
