Allen Johnson Mormon Sex Crime Case Summary

CALDWELL — A man who drove from Utah to meet up with a person he believed was a 15-year-old Caldwell girl has been sentenced to prison.

Allen Brent Johnson of Provo, Utah was sentenced Monday to eight years in prison, with three years before he would be eligible for parole. The judge in the case retained jurisdiction, meaning he could be released earlier if he successfully completes the rider.

Johnson began chatting with a Canyon County law enforcement officer who was posing as an underage girl in February. The officer reported that Johnson made several sexual comments before asking to meet the “girl.”

The pair made a plan meet up at a Caldwell Burger King, and Johnson rented a hotel room in Nampa.

Johnson made the 400-mile drive from Provo to Caldwell, only to be arrested and charged with child enticement when he reached the Burger King.

He told officers coming to Idaho to meet the teen was a mistake, but he hadn’t wanted to disappoint her.

In addition to the prison time, Johnson was also ordered to register as a sex offender.
