A Georgia man named Bennie Frank Johnson was sentenced to two life prison sentences for sexually assaulting the three generations of the same family.

According to Cobb County District Attorney Flynn Broady, a man named Bennie Frank Johnson,66 was convicted of rape, child molestation and two numbers of child molestation.

According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the mother of one of the victims said in a presentation during the sentencing hearing on Monday, March 7 “This is the beginning of breaking generational curses for my family”.

The investigation for the matter into the defendant began in 2017. According to court records reviewed by Law&Crime, in 2018, Bennie was charged and arrested before being formally accused by a Cobb County grand jury in early July of 2018. The suspect was indicted of multiple sexual assaults against a girl who is currently 12 years old (was around 8 years old at that time). During the investigation, the victim’s mother told the police that she had also been abused by the suspect when she was a child too.

According to Atlanta-based Fox affiliate WAGA, another witness known as Johnson’s former stepdaughter, also accused him of raping her when she was a child. She said that Bennie was previously married to her mother. Also, none of the identities of the victims was released by the authorities.

The TV station reported that the shreds of evidence that were marshalled by the prosecution at the trial included medical personnel, testimony from law enforcement agents and the first victim to report his sexual assaults.

According to the court records acquired by Law&Crime, Johnson denied the bond on the ground that he posed “a significant risk of intimidating a witness or otherwise obstructing justice”. Since his arrest, he was detained at the Cobb County Jail in Mableton, Ga.

Over the charges of rape, aggravated child molestation and two counts of child molestation, the Superior Court of Cobb County conducted a jury trial on May 10, 2021. Ten days later, the court declared a mistrial.

In the second round of the proceedings, he was first charged with one additional count each of aggravated child molestation and child molestation. Those two counts which were additional were nixed.

Johnson filed a plea behind the bars alleging that both the cases involved the same alleged victim. The state finally agreed that a few of the additional counts would not be added to the accusation.

He was identified as “Grandfather” in some media outlets, and then was ultimately found guilty and was sentenced to two life terms and an additional five-year term.

“I am thankful for the hard work of our District Attorney’s Special Victims Unit, law enforcement partners, SafePath Children’s Advocacy Center, WellStar, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta,” Assistant District Attorney Alex Clark said in a press release. “Based on the sentencing today, Johnson will never be able to abuse another child again.”
