Sequim man faces multiple child rape, molestation charges

A Sequim man remains in custody after Sequim Police arrested him for multiple counts of rape and molestation of children.

Lynn G. Johnson, 67, a level 2 sex offender, was booked on Feb. 1 in Clallam County Correctional Facility for allegedly raping and molesting at least four children ages 13-16.

Det. Sgt. Mike Hill said Johnson allegedly supplied minors with money, alcohol, tobacco, and/or marijuana in exchange for sexual favors.

Johnson’s case remains under investigation but there may be more victims who have yet to come forward, Hill said.

Sequim Police report victims came to them in mid-January to report instances of alleged sexual contact with Johnson that occurred over a period of several years.

Johnson’s first hearing was Monday, Feb. 4 with Judge Brent Basden setting bail at $350,000 in Clallam County Superior Court. His next hearing is set for 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6.

Sequim Police seek charges of first-degree rape of a child, second-degree rape of a child, third-degree rape of a child, three counts of second-degree molestation, four counts of third-degree child molestation, and second-degree attempted rape.

Hill reports Johnson was arrested outside his vehicle, about one block away from his residence at 367 W. Cedar St., Sequim, without incident.

Johnson was convicted in 1996 as a sex offender for second-degree child molestation and third-degree child molestation.

Those with information about Johnson’s conduct are asked to contact Sequim Police Officer Paul Dailidenas at 360-683-7227.
