A Warren Township man who is on probation for a previous sex offense has been arrested on a secret indictment charging him with sex offenses involving a child.

According to Trumbull County Jail records, 44-year-old Joel Paul Johnson was arrested Monday on charges of gross sexual imposition and two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Investigators say the female victim was fourteen years old when the alleged crimes occurred in June of 2010.

In 2020, the Trumbull County Grand Jury indicted Johnson on two counts of compelling prostitution.

Johnson pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to compel prostitution and was placed on probation for five years.

This past November, Johnson was sentenced to Trumbull County’s Drug Court program.
