Although Johnson was not found guilty of the most serious charges, a judge still handed him two summary harassment charges.

Johnson told the Huffington Post: “It’s crazy because I know how it feels sitting across from that judge and that jury when you’re innocent.

“I went to jail for two weeks, then I went to trial. Thank God I won. That was one of the happiest days; I just felt like my life was going to be taken from me.”
