Ojai Man Arrested in Hermosa Beach

A 45-year-old Ojai man was arrested by the Hermosa Beach Police Department May 28 and charged with two counts of violating California Penal Code 289(e) — sexual penetration with a foreign object, according to Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Siannah Callado. Jon Johnson remains in custody at the Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles with bail set at $200,000. He was arraigned in Torrance Municipal Court on May 31 and entered a plea of not guilty. He is scheduled to appear in court June 29 to determine the date for a preliminary hearing. It is the policy of the Ojai Valley News in cases alleging sexual offenses not to publish the names of suspects until they have been arraigned and allowed to enter a plea, and further court action has been scheduled.
