Eddie Johnson, Child Molestation, 2006
“Fast” Eddie Johnson was a 49th-round draft pick for the Atlanta Hawks in 1977, and although local fans took to him on the court, he never was able to bring his team to the championships. After a decade in the NBA, he was forced out due to his drug problems. After leaving the world of pro sports, Johnson let his darker side take over.
He moved to Florida and was arrested for over 100 offenses, most of them relating to drug usage. But it wasn’t just nose candy that made Eddie run — he also had an eye for very young ladies: In 2006, he was arrested for sexual molestation and battery of an eight-year-old girl. He was convicted in 2008 and given a mandatory sentence of life in prison with no possibility of parole.
