Convicted paedophile Adam Johnson has been filmed telling his fellow inmates that he wishes he had raped his victim.
The ex-England footballer, who has a two-year-old daughter, is serving six years in prison for sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.
In the footage, filmed inside jail, another prisoner points out that Johnson didn’t commit rape, to which Johnson laughs and says ‘I wish I fucking did for six years’.
The shocking video, which has likely ruined his hopes for appeal according to The Sun, also shows him making crude breast gestures about the girl saying she was wearing ‘tight jeans, little shirt, tits out’.
The disgraced former Sunderland player told jurors in court that he was ‘ashamed’ of his actions, but in the video, he seems much more defiant, blaming his Premier League status for putting him in jail for ‘fuck all’.
When a fellow inmate asks what would have happened if he was ‘Joe Public’, 29-year-old Johnson says ‘I would have got a caution at the police station. They might not even have charged… If I wasn’t who I was, he (the girl’s dad) wouldn’t have gone to the police station. I didn’t even get me cock out or fuck all’.
In the video, the conversation goes:
Prisoner: How long you got, six years int ya?
Prisoner: And you never even f***ed the bird?
Johnson (laughing): I didn’t even get my c**k out.
Prisoner: It’s not like you f***ing raped her or owt like that?
Johnson (laughing): No, I wish I f***ing did for six year.
Describing what happened, Johnson said:
I was going to the home games like, you park your car in the car park and she was at my car every game right, waiting for me, just standing there like in all the gear and that… like tight jeans, little shirt, t**s out (makes crude gesture), not like skirts and that.
Then after the game she was asking for pictures all the time.
This went on for about six months and the next thing she says, ‘Can you get us a signed shirt?’ and uh… then she added me (on social media).
I accepted her, got talking to her, I didn’t, I didn’t know, I just thought she was 17, 18.
Got talking to her for a few weeks and then I met up with her and f***ing kissed her and…
And there’s lads on here who’s f***ing shagged like 12-year-olds and got 13 months and that.
Speaking about his future in football, Johnson said:
I’ve got more chance abroad. You can’t get a second chance in England man.
All them do-gooders they’ll come out and say, ‘Nah he can’t play and all this, he’s done this’.
The video ends with a righteous speech about how ‘birds can say anything’ and how he sympathises with fellow disgraced footballer Ched Evans who was cleared of rape at a retrial last year.
Speaking ignorantly about consent, Johnson says:
If she’s apparently (makes speech marks with fingers) too drunk to consent you’re getting fucking buried.
People on nights out you know who’ve been pissed, the girl’s been pissed, a bit like with Ched, what happened to Ched, where you can feel a bit for them (the offender).
How many birds have you gone back with who’ve been pissed, you’ve been pissed, fuck them? If they say, ‘I can’t remember what happened’ you’re fucked. D’you know what I mean? You get done for rape.
Claire Waxman, of Voice4Victims, said:
These victim-blaming comments minimise the appalling crimes of rape and child grooming and can trigger trauma for victims.
The six-minute film, believed to have been taken in the laundry room at HMP Moorland has sparked an immediate investigation by prison chiefs.
