In October, John W. Johnston, 31, of Idyllwild, pleaded guilty to unlawful intercourse with a minor more than three years younger than himself. Earlier this month, his sentence of 112 days in a work-release program was revoked.
On Jan.10, Riverside County requested that the work-release time be converted to straight jail time. Judge Kelly Hansen agreed with the change in sentence.
As of the date of the court hearing, Hansen gave Johnston credit for 40 days of the 120 served. He owed 80 more days and was remanded to the custody of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Johnston was arrested for statutory rape on Sept. 25, 2017. He pleaded guilty a week later.
