JOHNSON v. THE STATE.
A94A2167.
BLACKBURN, Judge.
Child molestation. Gordon Superior Court. Before Judge Howell.
Following a trial by jury, the appellant, Lewis Leon Johnson, Jr., was found guilty of two counts of child molestation and was acquitted of three counts of child molestation. His motion for new trial was denied by the trial court and this appeal followed. In his sole enumeration of error, Johnson contends that the evidence was insufficient to support the verdict. We disagree and affirm his convictions.
The evidence viewed in the light most favorable to the verdict shows that in March 1993, Johnson resided in his home with his former live-in girl friend and her nine-year-old daughter, one of the molestation victims. Both victims testified that while they were home alone with Johnson, Johnson played a videotape depicting his girl friend having sexual intercourse with another man. During the movie, Johnson and his girl friend's daughter were naked and the other victim was partially clothed. Johnson's former girl friend testified that when she returned home unexpectedly, the two victims ran into a bedroom closet to get their clothing while Johnson pulled a blanket up to his waist. Johnson was unclad above the waist. Although Johnson admitted making the sexually explicit videotape, he denied showing the videotape to the victims.
T. Joseph Campbell, District Attorney, Sharon M. Fox, Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
William R. Thompson, Jr., for appellant.
DECIDED AUGUST 26, 1994.
