If you don't believe it after reading this........
hen S. Curtis “Curt” Johnson was first charged in March 2011, he faced a possible 40-year prison term for felony charges alleging he repeatedly sexually assaulted a child, his 12-year-old stepdaughter. By the time the court case ended over three years later, he had pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct. At most, he would spend a year in jail.
But then, as one of his lawyer’s firms boasts on its website, he earned “dramatically reduced charges and sentencing” of four months in prison (he served just three) and a $6,000 fine. He never even had to register as a sex offender.
Did it help that Johnson was a billionaire (Forbes estimates his wealth at $4.2 billion), a scion of one of the richest families in America (Forbes most recently ranked the Johnson family at No. 6, at $30 billion), the great-great-grandson of another S. Curtis Johnson, who founded the storied S.C. Johnson company? That he was able to afford the very best legal representation? Or that he faced justice in Racine, Wisconsin, where the family name is plastered all over the town?
