Father of former Marlin Charles Johnson accused of molesting 2 girls


Recommended Posts

FORT PIERCE - A St. Lucie County schools teacher and coach -- and the father of former Florida Marlins catcher Charles Johnson Jr. -- was arrested Tuesday, accused of molesting two female students between the ages of 12 and 16, according to arrest reports.

 

Fort Pierce Westwood High School math teacher and baseball coach Charles Edward Johnson Sr., 55, has been charged with lewd and lascivious molestation, according to the reports.

 

Johnson has been the head baseball coach at Westwood for 24 years, first from 1979 to 1994 then from 2002 to this past season. Westwood has been to the state finals once during Johnson's tenure, back in 1988 when the team finished 21-9 and were beaten by Tampa-Plant in the Class 3A championship game, 12-2.

 

A key member of that 1988 Westwood team was Johnson's oldest son, Charles Jr., who went on to a successful baseball career, first at the University of Miami, then in the major leagues with the Marlins, Dodgers, Orioles, White Sox, Rockies and Devil Rays. His son, an All-Star and Golden Glove winning catcher, was a member of the Marlins 1997 World Series championship team.

I just wanna throw it out there, I don't believe this at all, just to clarify... And if anyone has the right to judge this guy, I've hung out with him after my football practices, very very unlikely... I think this is grade A bullcrap

 

I am not saying CJ's father is guilty or innocent but I doubt you really know him from hanging out with a few times , there are plenty of sick people who appear normal under most circumstances

My sister took his class her freshman year (without incident), and my mom became friends with him too... it's not 30 years, but this is a guy that has been working with kids for years... and something in the story that doesn't make sense:

 

May 5th, the girl gets her "privates" felt up... and comes back two days later? Only to have her "breasts" (this is a freshman class) felt up...? You got molested one day, and come back two days later... it doesn't make any sense to me

 

Also, I've hung out with him more than just football practices... that's just the biggest one, because that was during baseball season, and it's public knowledge, I
