Koba, now 36, is not the only one to accuse Johnson of inappropriate behavior. In the early 2000s, investigators uncovered reports that young girls at St. Hope Academy, the charter school Johnson founded, accused him of sexual harassment. And back in April, a city employee filed a claim against Johnson, alleging he made unwanted sexual advances toward her.
No legal action was ever taken in the St. Hope case, and the city attorney has denied the claim made by the employee. Further, the city attorney said an independent investigation by an outside law firm could not substantiate the employees allegations.MORE NEWS: Folsom Ice Skating Rink Reopens After Weeks Of Delays
Investigators declined to prosecute Johnson in Koba’s case. Johnson reportedly settled with Koba’s family for $230,000.
