After a four-day trial in the Vanderburgh County Circuit Court, 35-year-old Demarco Johnson of Evansville, Indiana, was found guilty of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, Incest, and Attempted invasion of privacy, according to a statement released by the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor's Office on Friday.
According to the prosecutor's office, says Johnson's DNA profile was a match for the victim's sexual assault kit.
"The courage displayed by the victim during this entire court proceeding should be applauded," explained Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Nick Hermann. "The investigation by the Evansville Police Department provided our office with enough evidence to convict Mr. Johnson of this heinous act."
A Habitual Offender Enhancement for Johnson will take place on Sept. 4. A Habitual Offender Enhancement is used to increase the penalty for a given crime based on an individual's criminal history.
Johnson's sentencing is set for Sept. 11, where he faces a maximum of 32 years in prison.
The investigation was led by Evansville Police Detective Mike Kennedy, along with Deputy Prosecutor Emily Hall and Jeremy Kemper.
