Phony Marine convicted

| December 1, 2012

Frankly Opinionated sends us a link to an article about James M. Johnson, 29, of Roxboro, N.C. who created several profiles on dating websites posing as a Marine. Johnson had never served in the miltary.

The online dating profiles also included pictures of a uniformed U.S. Marine, the court documents state.

In court documents, prosecutors said Johnson used the online profiles to contact at least 11 women between July 2009 and October 2010 and, after developing relationships with the women, tried to convince them to send him nude pictures or engage in sexual activity in front of a webcam.

When the women refused, Johnson would threaten them, telling one woman he would kill her and her children and threatening to blow up another’s house, the court documents state.

Because, that’s what marines do best – kill women and children and blow up houses. Johnson got a year, but he deserves more. Hopefully, Bubba knows a real veteran.

    They should send all those SV people to Leavenworth. They want to pretend to be military? Ok. Serve out your sentence in a military prison with Federal sentencing and custodial guidelines.

    Nah, they’d be crying, “cruel and unusual punishment” before the cell door could slam shut.

    You guys remember years ago a judge would offer the convicted the choice of going to to jail for X-number of years or serving a hitch in the military or Marine Corps? A couple of friends of mine from the “hood” got that offer and it straightened one of them out! One became a truck driver and is going to retire with the Teamsters, the other is now in the Federal penitentiary in Florence, Az. Hey, batting .500 is pretty damn good!?!
