Sunderland Player Arrested On Suspicion Of Sex With Teen

Sunderland Player
England footballer Adam Johnson was today arrested on suspicion of having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The £50,000-a-week Sunderland winger was arrested at his home this morning, where police are said to have found a legally-owned loaded gun during their search of the property.

Neighbours said they assumed the 27-year-old footballer’s £1.5million property in County Durham had been burgled when they saw activity outside the sprawling mansion.

The Sun quoted local residents who said that scenes of crime officers searched a triple garage in the two-acre grounds of the property after arriving shortly after 9am.

A Durham Police spokesman said: 'A 27-year-old man was arrested earlier today on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16.'

He was released on bail tonight and will return to Peterlee police station at a later date. 

Johnson - who became a father in January - was born in Sunderland and brought up in Easington, County Durham.

Johnson had been due to travel with the rest of the squad to Humberside this afternoon for tomorrow night's Barclays Premier League fixture at Hull. 

The Sexual Offences Act 2003 states that anyone found guilty of sexual activity with a child under 16 can be sentenced to a maximum of 14 years in prison.
