Teenage girl abducted and raped over three years, manages to flee

Steven Johnson held captive a teenager of 19 years old, who said she was held and raped during her abduction

An Illinois man pleaded guilty to a sexual charge involving a teenager who claims that held her captive in his house for over three years, raped her daily and had a son of his captor.

Steven Johnson, 25, entered his plea in St. Clair County Circuit Court, after Washington Park police continue denouncing the 19-year-old, who said he had been held against her will in the house Johnson since April 2009 and was forced back at gunpoint when she tried to flee.

The woman told investigators she finally escaped on 20 August with the help of a relative.

The Johnson Family have refuted the allegations, telling the media that she was always free to leave the house.

Johnson and his mother were arrested Thursday after a SWAT team raided his house. He was charged Saturday with one count of felony sexual abuse, the defendant claims to have had sex with the teen since she disappeared in 2009.

Johnson also was charged with promoting prostitution, although it is unclear if this is related to the case of the teen-drug possession and firearm. The prisoner had been convicted of burglary.

Johnson’s mother, 54 years old, Owida Johnson, also appeared in court on Monday on two counts of misdemeanor child endangerment put. The charges say they submitted to the teenage son of two years old and another child “living conditions unsafe and unhealthy” at home. It describes the unsafe electrical wiring, animal feces and insects in the home and spoiled food in the refrigerator.

Police said the teen told investigators she endured almost daily shocks and sexual abuse at home and when he tried to escape, Johnson took her back, sometimes at gunpoint. The teen also told investigators that Johnson helped hold Owida against their will and falsifying medical records when his son was born.

Police Chief David Clark said the teenager met Johnson voluntarily and went home with him, but was not allowed to leave. Clark said the three-day delay between the time that the woman made her complaint to the police and a search of the house was devoted largely to trying to justify her story, which the same family of Steven Johnson rejected.

Former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich gets 14 years prison sentence!

The former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich today went to prison to serve a sentence of 14 years for trying to profit from the Senate seat Barack Obama vacated to assume the American presidency.

Blagojevich, 55, arrived Thursday afternoon at the federal prison in Englewood, 24 miles south of Denver (Colorado), after lunch at a local fast food restaurant under the watchful eye of television cameras.

The Democratic former governor was convicted on December 7 of the 18 charges against him, including trying to sell or profit from the ancient seat Obama occupied in the U.S. Senate.

Illinois state law allowed Blagojevich to appoint the new senator and, despite rumors of corruption and the reluctance of the Senate, appointed candidate Ronald Burris, who would later admit that the former governor demanded money in exchange for the seat.

The prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was reportedly accused of having used his position to raise funds in exchange for signing legislation or award of contracts.

That charge, which joined other for soliciting bribes and mail fraud, led to the resignation of Blagojevich in 2009 and the subsequent opening of the judicial process.

According to federal regulation, Blagojevich will have to meet at least 12 of the 14-year sentence, for that good behavior discount allowed 54 days per year.

On arrival at the prison, the former governor went through a thorough inspection and subsequent psychological and medical evaluation, according to the local station KDVR.
