The former England footballer was initially found guilty of one offence of sexual activity with a child by a jury at Bradford Crown Court on March 2.

He was sentenced to six years in prison and was also ordered to pay £50,000 in prosecution costs. He also signed the sex offenders register and will remain on it for the rest of his life.

It appears, though, that despite the conviction, the ex-Manchester City and Sunderland midfielder is still receiving support. 

Facebook message

Unsurprisingly, after his sister set up the Facebook page in support of her brother, it was targeted by trolls, but it appears that she is still using it to keep 'fans' updated with his situation. 

Here's what his sister posted on Facebook: 

Johnson, who was stripped of his international caps by England, is currently serving his sentence on A-Wing at HMP Armley.
