CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A man registered as a sex offender in Kentucky has been indicted in Tennessee on charges he raped a child over several years.
The Leaf-Chronicle reported that a grand jury in Montgomery County, Tenn., charged 42-year-old Joey Johnson with nine counts of rape of a child, two counts of sexual exploitation and one count of aggravated sexual exploitation.
