Adam Johnson and his girlfriend Stacey Flounders arrive at Bradford Crown Court where Johnson is facing child sexul assault charges on February 12, 2016 in Bradford, England. The fomer Sunderland FC midfielder, aged 28 and from Castle Eden, County Durham, is on trial for two counts of sexual activity having pleaded guilty to two others.

28 year old footballer Adam Johnson is currently on trial in the UK for texting and making out with a secondary school girl who was only 15.

The girl is a Sunderland fan (he got fired from the team yesterday) and prosecutors say she idolized him. He met up with her and they exchanged naughty text messages while he was living with his pregnant girlfriend, Stacey Flounders and after she gave birth to their daughter, his only child.

In fact, according to Mirror, one time he sent her a dirty text message just 30 seconds after he received a photo of his newborn baby with his live-in girlfriend.

A jury was told the 28-year-old text the schoolgirl saying ‘I’ll last 10 seconds though, lol” after suggesting he wanted to remove her jeans.

The prosecution said just 30 seconds earlier he received a picture from girlfriend Stacey Flounders of their new baby daughter and replied “she looks class”.

Going to the beginning, prosecutors say when the girl added him on Facebook right before New Years 2014, she made it clear she had just turned 15.

According to BBC,

Prosecutor Kate Blackwell QC said the girl was a passionate Sunderland Football Club fan and “idolised” Mr Johnson, who was her favourite player.

“After matches, she would hang around waiting for a glimpse of him, wanting to get a photograph, often sporting a Sunderland shirt with Johnson’s name emblazoned across the back,” she told the court.

After he started texting her, his browser search history show he looked for ‘legal age of consent’ four days after.

One text exchange showed he knew about her age, he asked her if she drinks and if she goes out, “Where do you go out?” Victim: “I’m not old enough to go out.” Johnson: “Yeah, but you look old enough.”

Then they first met up in his Range Rover outside a Chinese takeaway near her house, where he gave her a signed jersey in January 2014. On January 30 they met there again, and kissed, as well as unzipped her jeans.

This is a text message exchange after that sexual encounter:

Johnson: “It was class.” “Just wanted to get your jeans off, LOL.” The victim: “Next time.”

As for the charges against him, so far he has plead guilty to sexual activity with a child and to grooming, but not guilty to those involving penetration.

    Borderline paedophile. He had it all and now it’s all gone. Shame on him.

    His girlfriend walked out when the explicit texts were read out in court today. What did she expect to hear?

      Dont blame the girlfriend. She was probably hoping it is a frame up. Moreover you dont know what he told her.

      @Bio, her GF/Baby Mama knew exactly what he was being accused of – but chose to stand by him. Good for her (as we all have our own peculiar and unique life decisions to make), and while I will not ‘blame’ her but she still has to confront the consequences of her (adult) decisions.

    If it was in Nigeria, they would blame the teenage girl. Teenagers are meant to be dumb, an adult should know better.

      Teenagers aren’t meant to be dumb, please. That’s why they do atrocious things with these kinds of comments that justify the bizarre things they do. Life has stages, yes when you’re younger, your maturity level is low, but your point about saying that teenagers are meant to be dumb is incredibly illogical. Don’t even bring Nigeria into this.

      You took my comment literally? Okay then compare your maturity level with that of a teenager then. Naturally, a teenager is finding his/her way to adulthood so they make mistakes with their choices and that’s where an adult’s wisdom is needed. Your own comment justifies how teenagers are treated by adults as if they never passed through that phase themselves. We need to understand teenagers as adults and we are supposed to guide them instead of taking advantage or suppressing them. Tell me you didn’t do something stupid as a teenager and looking back now, you wonder how you could do something so ridiculous. Imagine someone taking advantage of you then. As a teenager, I remember thinking I needed a guy to validate me because it was cool to have a boyfriend. I would do anything then to get a boy’s attention then. It was not because I just wanted to be naughty but because I didn’t know better. I even remember trying to drink dettol once because my mum and older sister wouldn’t let me be. Thank God they more of made jest instead of outrightly giving stringent rules. I think back now and I just shake my head. As an adult, I will never take advantage of a teenage boy with a crush. It has happened before and I know how I handled it. So yes, if this were Nigeria…….well……you proved me right already.

      Give it a rest Cindy. You talk too much while displaying your family troubles here. Comment once and move on.

      Cindy, your initial comment was very unintelligent. Don’t even try to write a sermon to justify the illogical comment you initially typed. I raised my eyebrows when I read your comment. When you write something like that, you elaborate. You don’t just say teenagers are meant to be dumb, then try to write an epistle after someone has called you out on it. I’m sorry, your attempt failed woefully. I don’t think Belema is talking about how children are treated by adults, that’s far from the point, don’t even try to twist it; but your comment about teenagers in general – I think that was where he/she was astonished. That comment wasn’t accurate at all. Teenagers (not all) are sometimes naive, they’re not meant to be dumb. Do yourself a favor and be quiet already and don’t try to twist what you meant.

    call me weird but ,,,
    they texted?
    she had a crush on him?
    isn’t this a good instance for the legal system to take a holiday / look the other way / let people do what they want?

    i’m not saying this is model behaviour from either party but i’m angry if this is a crime.

      Tosin, he kissed her and unzipped her pants.

      Whenever next your hood is at risk of being visited by armed robbers because they can’t get gainful employment, maybe you might want to ask the legal enforcement system to look elsewhere… But I daresay certain laws are in existence for a good reason.

      She performed a sex act on him. This article doesn’t even address most of the key facts. Read up on the case and you will change your tone. This guy is a predator, to the extent that he was already searching “age of consent” on google right after their initial facebook interaction. Despite know the legal age, he still pursued her, even encouraging her to drink and party. Come on. He is a criminal.

    HETEROSEXUALS!!!!!!!
    deviants oshi

    why can’t u heterosexuals wait for the child to mature. tufia for una. 18 is still too young sef.
    21 or 22 should be the age of consent.

    • ElessarisElendil

      February 12, 2016 at 10:20 pm

      Why 18? for most of humanity’s history by 18 the woman definitely had more than 2 children. In the 22nd century when our life expectancy is 200, somebody will be making the argument for 30 to be the age of consent.

      Ahh the irony in calling Heterosexuals deviants, I so love your sense of humour.

    Useless guy,instead of him to face his football carrier his going with small girl,he is surely going to be persecuted for this. Nigerian footballers playing in diaspora take note if you do such thing you will be persecuted we are not in Nigeria where you can corrupt the autorities and then go free.

    The law in the UK says that an individual under 16 years is a child! Even if that child pursues you to “death” and jumps on you naked , the law is the law! Proceed at your own peril!

    People.don’t even think long term. Imagine baby girl Adams growing up with the knowledge that her papa was a paedophile.
    Just see how he disgraced his baby mama with his perversion! Kai!

    @enough you seem so pained about my comments. And talking about my own experience is not my family’s trouble please. It is your own family that will have troubles not mine.
    @jay my initial comment wasn’t generalizing, it is not my fault that you could not comprehend. And I am not backtracking on what I believe in because you agreeing with me with your likes won’t feed me. I explained what I meant but no, you already had your preconceived interpretation. Hence you thought my second comment was a backtrack because that is what you would do in that situation.
    To all Cindy haters on this blog, well…………. Keep at it. Na your body e dey pinch. Ntorr!??
