Iron River man sentenced on CSC charge

An Iron River man accused of criminal sexual conduct will spend one year in jail.

Dennis Johnson, 55, was sentenced Monday in Iron County Trial Court.

Johnson initially went to trial in December, but the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict on four of his six original CSC counts.  That resulted in a mistrial and a new trial was scheduled for later this month.

Instead, he pled guilty to three counts of attempted CSC in the second degree in March as part of a plea agreement.
