A Roseburg man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly inappropriately touching a 4-year-old female relative.

David Joseph Johnson, 31, was charged with first-degree sex abuse.

During a recorded phone conversation, Johnson admitted to touching the child’s vagina with his hand until he became aroused.

Deputies with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office took Johnson into custody after they found him sitting in his car in Green just after midnight.

Johnson's arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday.

He gets to choose whether he wants his hand, his pen is or his head chopped off. I wonder if this would be a deterrent?
