Judge modifies bond for Curt Johnson, allowing limited out-of-state travel

RACINE -- A Racine County Circuit Court judge on Monday slightly modified the bond for Curt Johnson.

Johnson, 56, billionaire son of the late Sam Johnson and former chairman of Diversey Inc., was charged in March with repeated sexual assault of a child. He is out of jail on a $500,000 cash bond.

On Monday Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz altered the conditions of Johnson's bond to allow him to travel out of state to see his wife, to attend counseling sessions and for business within the continental United States.

According to court documents, Johnson allegedly had sexual contact with the victim as many as 15 to 20 times. The girl was 15 when the criminal complaint was filed earlier this year, and she told authorities that the alleged contact with Johnson began when she was between 6th and 7th grade. The last incident reportedly occurred in November 2010, according to court records.

The girl reportedly told someone at the Child Advocacy Center that Johnson had a "touching problem" and that he was a "sex addict." She said Johnson allegedly kissed her on the mouth and touched her inappropriately under her clothes.
