Johnson Pleads Guilty to Sex Crimes

Posted: Updated:

A Jamestown man who has already served prison time for sexually assaulting a North Dakota boy nearly 20 years ago has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting his two young stepdaughters in Ward County soon after leaving prison.

Garry Wayne Johnson changed his plea to guilty Thursday in Northwest District Court to two counts of Gross Sexual Imposition.

The charges are Class Double-A Felonies.

Johnson admitted to the sexual abuse of two girls in 2007, a crime that came to light when the step-grandmother of the girls came forward in 2012.

The abuse happened soon after Johnson had been released from prison on a 1996 conviction for sexual assault.

A pre-sentence investigation has been ordered by Judge Gary Lee.

The felonies carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.
