People ask why the other victims didn't forward? Yes there is 'innocent until proven guilty', but when it involves sexual assualt, how do you think the victim feels when a phrase like that is thrown arround. This is probably the #1 reason for alot of victims not coming forward, they don't want to deal with the 'is she making it up?' crap that comes with virtually every sexual assult case.

It probably doesn't help either that he is a 'semi-celebrity' in the town.
Please note that nowhere does it say she didn't report it... Johnson was charged with both counts at the same time, leading to the conclusion that they knew of the first attack but couldn't connect the dots until the second attack happened (allegedly).
