Footballer Adam Johnson was caught explaining his ordeal to inmates
Adam Johson, 29, has been secretly caught on camera talking to his fellow prison inmates. He said he wished he raped the 15 year old fan, that all he did was kiss her but he is serving 6 years in prison because of who he is.
He also said he thought the girl was 17 or 18.
Adam Johnson, the disgraced former England footballer, has been secretly filmed in prison laughing about his conviction for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old fan.
In a video published by the Sun, the ex-Sunderland midfielder dismissed his crimes as “fuck all” and said he would have been let off with a caution if he was “Joe Public”.
Responding to a fellow prisoner who said Johnson did not rape his victim, the former footballer said: “No, I wish I fucking did for six years.”
Johnson, 29, was jailed for six years in March after being convicted of grooming, kissing and sexual activity with the teenage girl following a trial at Bradford crown court.
Last month Johnson lost a second attempt to overturn his conviction and reduce
his sentence at the court of appeal.
Johnson’s sister, Faye, who had been leading her brother’s appeal attempts, had not commented publicly on the Sun video on Friday morning.
The Ministry of Justice declined to comment on the footage but it is believed the leaked recording will spark an investigation by prison officials.
