DC cop charged with child sex abuse

A DC police officer who had been on duty for about three years was arrested Thursday and charged with dual first-degree child sexual abuse, according to a department statement.

Authorities identified the officer as Charles Johnson II, 28, of Northwest Washington. He was arrested on warrant and was able to appear in DC Superior Court on Friday.

A police department spokesman, Dustin Sternbeck, said Johnson was suspended in May when investigators opened an investigation. He is assigned to the 1st Ward station, which includes Capitol Hill, the Waterfront, Chinatown and the Navy Yard.

Officials released few details of the case on Thursday, describing the victim only as a teenage woman he knew. Police said the alleged abuse occurred on multiple occasions between January 2020 and September 2021. Additional information is expected to be released in court documents unsealed at Johnson’s first court appearance.

Whether Johnson has a lawyer could not be determined. A man who answered the phone at Johnson’s home and said he was related to Johnson said the family had not commented. The man did not want to give his name.
