LOOK WHO'S GLEN ARBOR'S LOW-RENT JERRY SANDUSKY!! IT'S ROBERT MAURICE JOHNSON Multimillionaire Convicted Child Pornographer Plans To Party Like It's 1999 At Birthday Blowout July 14th; Sick, Sleazy Porn Conviction Keeps Him On Sex Offender Registry Until 2031

Johnson claimed pressure of being a corporate chief executive made him severely depressed.

“I decided to escape,” Mr. Johnson said. “I decided to go to fantasy because reality was too much to bear.”

(Poor baby!)
 



Johnson used a program called "Evidence Eliminator" to try to erase more than 12,000 child pornography files from his work computer.

Name disappears from Michigan registry when Johnson spends time at posh homes in Florida and the Dominican Republic...and it's legal!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, up pops ole Bob Johnson.  Looks like a friendly neighbor, right? Smiling at you in the picture (above, courtesy of the Michigan Sex Offender Registry), you'd never know that he's a convicted child pornographer who's required to register as a sex offender until 2031--when he'll be 86!!

But Johnson's not your average ChoMo--he's a multimillionaire and the former publisher of Newsday, a New York City daily newspaper.  And neighbor Bob has the distinction of being one of the best-known men accused of child pornography offenses.

On August 4, 2006, Johnson pled guilty in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York to one count of possession of child pornography and one count of destroying computer records, and was sentenced to fifteen months in federal prison on December 15, 2006.

Born in Joliet, Illinois, Johnson attended Lockport Central High School. He graduated from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, in 1968, majoring in Business Finance and Management. He received a Juris Doctor degree in 1971 from the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He has also received an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from St. John's University, an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Hofstra University, and an Honorary Doctor of Science degree from Dowling College.

Johnson, the former publisher of Newsday and a member of the New York State Board of Regents for nine years, was indicted in 2005 on federal charges of downloading child pornography onto his office computer and then trying to destroy it once he learned that his company was being investigated.

The three-count indictment, filed in Federal District Court in Manhattan, charges that starting in April 2002, Mr. Johnson used two e-mail names to visit child pornography Web sites and download at least two movies containing such pornography while he was chief executive of Bowne & Company, a New York financial printing operation.

Excerpt from Johnson's child pornography indictment:
During the time period beginning in or about April 2002 through in or about May 2004, ROBERT JOHNSON, a/k/a "robjob714," a/k/a "jobobo55," the defendant, used the Company’s computer systems to access websites on the Internet that contained child pornography. JOHNSON used a computer owned by the Company and assigned to him to download from the Internet at least two movie files that contain child pornography.

Prosecutors charged that around that time, after learning that federal authorities had traced illegal downloads to Bowne computers, Mr. Johnson tried to erase the files on his office computer.

According to the indictment, agents from the customs enforcement branch of the Department of Homeland Security tracked the child pornography to "a computer using an Internet protocol address that agents traced" to Bowne and Mr. Johnson.

In the first days of May 2004, the indictment says, customs agents advised company lawyers that the company was under investigation for receiving child pornography. On May 5, 2004, a company lawyer told Mr. Johnson about the investigation, according to the indictment.

It charges that on May 5 and 6, Mr. Johnson used a program called Evidence Eliminator to try to erase more than 12,000 files from his computer. On May 10, Bowne officials seized Mr. Johnson's desktop and laptop computers and later turned them over to federal authorities.

If you're invited to Johnson's waterfront home for his son Chad's wedding later this month...leave the kids home.

      I have to tell you GlisteningQuiveringUnderbelly that this one is a bit of a shocker. It is nearly impossible to shock or suprise me as I've been around the old corruption block before, but you telling us that THIS GUY is in our beautiful back yard is a open-mouth-and-say-"WHAT?" moment. You've done a great service in sharing this information. For several valid reasons I check the sex offender registry regularly but I would never have known about this super-creep. There is only one thing worse than a true (clinically diagnosed) pedophile and that would be a clinical pedophile who also possesses power, influence, and lots and lots of money. This man is truly frightening and a REAL threat to be aware of. I'm not a fan of smearing people who have made mistakes and are on their way back toward building societal trust and showing real rehabilitation... BUT - I also sincerely believe that the type of person such as this man cannot be rehabilitated and poses a constant and very serious threat to anyone within his reach. Real pedophiles (Jerry Sandusky + many, many others) usually DO understand that their beliefs and actions are against the laws BUT they actually believe that it is okay to have "sexual relationships" (sexually, physically, and psychologically abuse) with young boys (or girls). The really believe deep inside that it is somehow okay or justifiable. Real pedophiles spend their personal and professional lives positioning themselves to be near young people. They hunt children. So - yes, second and third chances are warranted for many but never, ever is it safe to offer another chance at freedom to a sexual predator. NEVER. Thanks for pointing out this child sexual predator to us all.

    2. What Johnson did was wrong - so wrong, but he was never accused of being in touch or touching any children. There is a huge difference in watching and doing. I don't condone either, but lets be clear about the differentiation.
