A man has been sentenced to a total of seven years’ imprisonment following sexual activity with a person with a mental disorder who was unable to give consent.

He was also made subject to the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and issued with an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

Andrew Johnson, aged 48, of Jubilee Court, Bracknell, was sentenced at Kingston Crown Court today (21/4).

He was found guilty following a four day trial at Kingston Crown Court of three counts of the offence by a unanimous jury on 31 March.

The offences took place in Bracknell between 1 October, 2014 and 12 July 2015.

The victim, a woman in her thirties, has severe learning difficulties, and an assessment by an independent forensic psychologist found her unable to give consent to sex.

Despite this, Johnson engaged in a sexual relationship with her.

He was charged with the offences on 2 July, 2016.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Rachel Kluger of Maidenhead Force CID, said: “This conviction would not have been possible without the consistent hard work and support of Bracknell Adult Social Care Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities, the dedication of the lawyers and barristers involved and the wider police family.

“It is a prime example of how a multi-agency approach works to protect the most vulnerable members of our communities.”
