When a 15-year-old girl’s mother found out sexually explicit photos of her daughter were online, it had been nearly a year since her family had seen her. Police investigated and discovered nearly 60 pornographic videos of the Sunrise girl posted on Periscope, Pornhub, Modelhub, Snapchat and other websites, according to an arrest report. In some of the videos with the girl was a bald man who police recognized as one of two men the girl was with in February when a clerk at a 7-11 in Davie recognized her. Police obtained video surveillance from the store after that Feb. 26 sighting was reported. The video shows the girl trying to shield her face so the clerk at the store at 8630 W. State Road 84 couldn’t see her. The girl and the two men left in a black Dodge Challenger. Its tag was not visible, the report said.Police eventually linked the Dodge to a 30-year-old Davie man named Christopher Johnson and conducted surveillance at his apartment in the 8100 block of Southwest 24th Court. On Tuesday, when Johnson and the girl left the apartment and drove away in a black Dodge Challenger, police pulled them over. The girl later told detectives many of the videos of her having sex with Johnson had been recorded at his apartment, according to the report. Because of her age and the nature of the crime, the South Florida Sun Sentinel is not identifying the girl. A search warrant executed at Johnson’s apartment produced paperwork from an abortion clinic.“The victim stated that she got pregnant from the defendant and he took her to the clinic to have an abortion,” Detective Adam Granit wrote in Johnson’s arrest report. Johnson denied having sex with the girl. He was arrested Wednesday and is being held in the Broward Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale on a felony charge of lewd or lascivious battery on a victim between 12 and 16. A Broward judge set Johnson’s bail at $75,000.
