JUDGE UNAMUSED BY MONROE MANíS EXCUSE
March 22, 2009



(EVERETT, WA) -- A Snohomish County judge wasn't buying into a Monroe man’s excuse for being more than two hours late for his court hearing last Friday.

So Superior Court Judge Linda Krese ordered 75-year old Reuben Melvin Johnson jailed on a $100,000 bench warrant. She signed the warrant after Johnson failed to show for a morning court hearing.

Johnson is accused of sexually abusing a relative for years. The alleged victim was 5 years old when the abuse reportedly began, according to court papers filed in the case.

The Monroe man is charged with sex crimes including first-degree rape of a child. Police detectives say Johnson admitted his touching of the girl "got out of hand." Johnson also allegedly acknowledged abusing other relatives when they were children. Those alleged victims are now in their 40s and 50s.

Johnson pleaded not guilty to the charges in February and was allowed to remain free but he was brought back to court following allegations he had contacted the alleged victim and other witnesses. Johnson had been ordered by the court to stay at home except to attend medical appointments and meetings with his attorney and he was also ordered to be on electronic home monitoring.

However prosecutors told the judge on Friday that Johnson didn't show up for an appointment to be screened for home electronic monitoring. Johnson's attorney, Donald Wackerman, told judge Krese he thought Johnson may have been confused about court dates and that Johnson had rescheduled the appointment to be screened for home monitoring.

Judge Krese did not buy the explanation and signed an arrest warrant. Johnson did show up later on in Krese's courtroom and that is where the judge ordered marshals to take him into custody.
