John Johnson Jr.

An Abilene man was indicted on Thursday by a Taylor County grand jury for child sex crimes.

John Johnson Jr., 47, of Abilene, is charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child, as well as multiple other child sex crimes, for reportedly sexually abusing a mother and her daughter.

According to a court document, the Abilene Police Department began investigating Johnson in April.

The victim reported to authorities that she had been sexually abused by Johnson since 2007, when she was 13 years old.

The abuse reportedly occurred again at a south Abilene home when the victim was 19 years old.

The victim "determined she was pregnant," according to the document, and gave birth in March of 2014.

A paternity test confirmed that Johnson was the baby's father.

During a forensic interview in April, the victim's daughter reportedly told authorities that Johnson had inappropriately touched her.

Johnson's bonds are set at $775,000.
