The jury of five women and seven men found Johnson guilty of six of the eight counts he was charged with. They deliberated for more than five hours before rendering the verdict.

The jury had a lot of evidence and testimony to go over in the trial against Brett Johnson. The prosecution called more than a dozen witnesses in this case, including the two women who said Johnson assaulted them.

According to the testimony, he contacted one of the women from an ad she placed on backpage.com.

Johnson is accused of calling a private dancer to the Cottages Apartments in NW OKC on August 14. The police report states when the woman arrived; she and a friend began walking through the complex when Johnson told them to freeze. He then handcuffed the dancer and warned her that she was under arrest for trespassing.

Court papers state she thought Johnson looked like a real cop though something didn't feel right, and when he started patting her down, her feeling was confirmed. She claimed Johnson made her dance for him and perform sex acts to avoid going to jail.

Johnson was a reserve officer for the city of Minco but was not on duty at the time of the alleged incident.

Prosecutors say this wasn't about sex, but all about power and control for Johnson, who did not pay the women for their services.

Johnson also took the stand in this case, and told his side of the story. And Johnson was stunned as he walked out of the courtroom.

He will be back for his formal sentencing on November 30.

The jury recommended a total of 53 years in prison for Johnson. It will be up to the judge to decide if he will serve it consecutively or not.
