A top federal judge says he won’t dismiss charges against former teacher accused of sex assault
A federal judge has dismissed a sex assault allegation against a former teacher at a suburban Chicago elementary school, saying the case should not be dismissed because of “misconceptions” surrounding the allegations.
A federal judge on Friday rejected a motion by prosecutors to dismiss charges by U.S. District Judge Edward T. DiGenova of the Eastern District of Illinois against former Chicago Public Schools teacher Christopher Johnson.
Johnson, 41, faces a criminal charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree, according to court records.
Johnson and his attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.
