Hebron church intern sentenced to life in prison
By The Associated Press
LAWRENCEVILLE - A former youth leader at Hebron Baptist Church has been sentenced to life in prison after prosecutors say he posed as a girl on MySpace to find boys to molest.
Gwinnett Superior Court Judge Timothy Hamil ordered a life sentence for 29-year-old Antoine Johnson for molesting two boys ages 13 and 14 and attempting to lure a third child in 2008.
Johnson is a former intern and summer camp organizer at Hebron Baptist Church in Dacula.
Johnson had testified that he created a fictitious online identity on MySpace using a photo from a real account in Texas.
The judge called his scheme "absolutely diabolical." The evidence included a taped interview, in which Johnson mimics the falsetto voice he used as "Kristen" while talking to boys.
