FOOTBALLER ADAM JOHNSON HAS LOST FIRST STAGE OF HIS APPEAL FOR HIS SEX CONVICTION.


Ex-Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson who was convicted for engaging in sexual activity with a minor, a 15-year-old fan girl lost his first stage of his appeal - his sister Faye Johnson said.
Faye posted on twitter saying:

      'Absolutely devastated that the single judge has ejected my brother's appeal against sentence and conviction. But I can assure every supporter that it has made me stronger and I will never give up.'


It is understood his sister's comments refer to the first stage of the appeal process, in which one judge looks at the case before deciding whether to put it before three appeal court judges.

Johnson can still apply to the full court to look at the case again, but the single judge's rejection means he will not receive public funding for the appeal and if it goes through he will have to fund the appeal case from his own pockets.
