Effingham resident Mickey Johnson has pleaded guilty to the charge of Criminal Sexual Assault. The 32-year-old Johnson was in court Friday ahead of his August 31st trial date when the plea was reached. With the guilty plea, Johnson was sentenced to 12 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The charge against Johnson stems from an incident in September of 2011 involving a girl under the age of thirteen.
In addition to prison time, Johnson must spend three years on mandatory supervised release following his sentence and be registered as a sex offender.
