A Wisconsin billionaire has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of having sexual contact with a teenage girl.
Samuel ‘Curt’ Johnson III, whose family has run home-products giant SC Johnson for five generations, was convicted of fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to four months in jail, short of the one-year maximum. He was also fined $6,000.
Before sentencing Friday, the 59-year-old apologized to the victim and her mother for ‘the tremendous hurt I have caused.’
