A man who authorities said raped and tortured girls ages 13 and 14 after taking them to McDonald's in Lookout Valley, then driving them on to a wooded area rather than home, is facing 50 years in prison.
Christopher Jeffre Johnson, 49, pleaded guilty to rape and kidnapping charges on Thursday and received c consecutive 25-year sentences.
He pleaded guilty to four counts of aggravated rape and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping..
The girls - one of whom is related to Johnson - had been reported missing on Friday. One of them sent a text message that she was on her way home from McDonald's, but she and her friend never arrived.
Authorities said Johnson took them to a wooded area behind 421 Wilcox Road.
They said he tied them up with duct tape and rope and made them perform sex acts on one another and on him. He also raped them using the handle of a brush, it was stated.
Authorities said he forced the girls to comply by burning them with a cigarette lighter. The girls had visible burn and ligature marks, it was stated.
He "finally let them go after he was through with them," the incident report said.
