The Sun Prairie Police Department has been investigating allegations of inappropriate sexual conversations and explicit photograph dissemination between a 42YO male employee of the Sun Prairie School District who was working at the Sun Prairie High School and a 16 YO female student of the Sun Prairie High School. The behavior was initially reported to the police by school personnel once they were made aware of the situation in late June.

Further information gathered through the investigation led to a search warrant of Johnson’s residence on the morning of July 2nd. Johnson was taken into custody and booked into the Dane County Jail on charges of Use of a Computer to Facilitate a Child Sex Crime and Sexual Exploitation of a Child.

This investigation is still active and more information will be released when available.
