Girl's Allegations

Sacramento, CA: (May-20-08) A girl, who wished to stay unnamed, brought a sexual molestation lawsuit against Sacramento mayoral candidate Kevin Johnson, alleging that Johnson, who was 29 and playing for the Phoenix Suns, molested her when she was 16. Court papers reveal that Johnson denied the girl's allegations in the suit, though he agreed to pay $230,000 to resolve litigation. Johnson stated that he will pay some money upfront and the rest in six-month installments. Sources for the girl said that some of the money was to be used for medical, therapy and legal costs.

As part of the settlement agreement, the girl and her mother were restricted from talking publicly about the case, which originally sought $750,000 in damages from the Sacramento mayoral candidate. [KXTV NEWS 10: JOHNSON AGREED TO PAY GIRL IN MOLESTATION CLAIM, ACCORDING TO DOCUMENT DRAFT]
