Man sentenced on sexual contact charge

A Lake County man will serve time in the state penitentiary on a sexual contact charge.  23-year-old Roy Johnson the Third had been indicted on one count of sexual contact with a child under sixteen in September of 2018 and pleaded guilty to the charge in Lake County Circuit Court.  In court Tuesday, Johnson was sentenced by Circuit Judge Pat Pardy to serve five years in the state penitentiary. Judge Pardy gave Johnson credit for 208 days he’s already served in jail. Johnson was also ordered to pay fine and costs of more than six-hundred dollars, and restitution of more than 22-hundred dollars, as well as to reimburse the county for the cost of his court appointed attorney fees.
