The crimes are alleged to have happened years ago, but the arrest of a Lenoir man occurred this week  Christopher Gordon Johnson, now 49 years old, and now living in Lenoir, was charged with multiple sex offenses allegedly committed between 1996 and 2008 while he was living in Gaston County. 

Gaston County Police arrested Johnson Monday (Aug. 10th) charging him with one count of 2nd degree Rape, two  counts of 1st degree Sex Offense with a Child, one count of 1st degree Rape, two counts of 1st degree Statutory Rape of a Child, two  counts of 1st degree Statutory Sex Offense with a Child and five  counts of Indecent Liberties with a Child.
