Post  Andrew on Mon Mar 02, 2015 5:45 pm

Premier League player Adam Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of having sex with a girl under 16, according to Sky sources.

The Sunderland footballer was detained earlier in the day and remains in police custody, said Durham Police.

Johnson is helping officers with their enquiries, the force added.

In a statement, police said: "A 27-year-old man was arrested earlier today on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16.

"He remains in police custody and is helping officers with their enquiries."

Apparently the girl is 15 so we aren't talking of a very young child.

I've never heard of him so am not trying to make light of the charge but I think that her age does make a difference.

Now all we need is for John O'Shea to be involved in some kind of freak steam roller accident.

Forgot you're a Sunderland fan.

Will be lumping on a Hull win tonight. 

I should imagine he naively mistook this 15 year old for someone slightly older. No excuse mind.

Come out in the wash very soon.

There's a photograph in today's S** allegedly showing the two of them together

http://www.caughtoffside.com/2015/03/04/image-first-photo-revealed-of-adam-johnson-and-the-15-year-old-he-bedded/

(don't panic mods, her face is blurred out and it's the mainstream media)

He has a tiny head, the hair outlines are too crisp, he has the sun on his left hand side, she has no sun. And it's fuzzy, like a 1960s snapshot

Remind you of anything?

In my opinion this story is very dubious

Totally agree. That photo looks dodgy to say the least. C & P by the looks.

Well well well, someone else has spotted it:

I wonder if the media have ever knowingly published apparently photoshopped pictures from any other well-known crime stories?

A one-eyed man wearing sunglasses in a coal mine could see that is photoshopped but as we know
the tabloids don't let the truth spoil a good story.

It reminds me of the photos where you can get yourself pictured apparently with a celebrity - a friend has one of herself and Daniel Craig - but of course they're as genuine as some of the McCanns' photos; sorry, as genuine as a nine bob note.

Yea, like a cardboard cut out too, not saying it is but clearly shopped.

Adam Johnson

Will just chuck this one here:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4319422/Footballer-Adam-Johnson-LOSES-Appeal-Court-challenge.html

BREAKING NEWS: Paedophile footballer Adam Johnson LOSES Appeal Court challenge against conviction and sentence for sexual activity with besotted 15-year-old fan
Former England winger was found guilty last year of sexual activity with child
He admitted kissing her but denied any further sexual activity in Range Rover
Three judges at the Court of Appeal announced decision after his challenges
Johnson took advantage of a 'teenager's adoration of a successful celebrity'


I actually thought that he would win his appeal. Money talking and everything. Not to be.

Transferred from the miscellaneous topic.

Just noticed you've changed the title topic of this thread.

Can I just point out that he didn't have underage sex with her and wasn't charged with that.

Isn't "sexual activity with a child" the same thing? Not that I want to get into a technical discussion! I'll change the heading.

Yeah I suppose sexual activity (slap and tickle with a minor) but he didn't actually have sex with her. A charge of grooming as well I think.

Certainly not condoning it by the way by pointing that out.

Anyway I'll shut up now.

You're right to point this out, Andrew. I'd made assumptions without reading the details of the case.

In my opinion the sentence is too harsh. Do we know if AJ was aware of the girl's actual age?

If you read between the lines of this post you will work out exactly what act he was allegedly fingered for.

I was going to reply back with a witty comment but thought better of it.

Yes, Freedom. He did know that she was 15.
