Jeffrey Lee Johnson, 58, was sentenced to a total of 39 years for two counts of molestation of a juvenile. That's 12 years for each count and 15 years for one count of possession of pornography with intent to distribute involving juveniles.

The investigation began after the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Department received a complaint of sexual abuse involving Johnson and two minors that occurred between the years of 1997-2013.

The Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit later got involved after VPSO detectives found child pornography on Johnson’s computer.
