MERAUX, LA (NBC33) — A 21-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly blackmailed his ex-girlfriend, who is a juvenile, into continuing a sexual relationship.
The St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office reports that John Johnson, Jr., of Meraux, met a juvenile girl on a social networking site and began a sexual relationship with her.

When questioned, Johnson allegedly confessed to the sexual relationship, but said he had no sex video. He also admitted to attempting to scare her so she wouldn’t break up with him.
Johnson was arrested and charged with two counts of Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile and one count of Extortion.
