SC Johnson heir expected to be convicted of reduced charge Friday

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine billionaire is expected to be convicted Friday on a reduced misdemeanor charge for allegedly molesting a teenage girl for several years.  

A plea and sentencing hearing was scheduled for Curt Johnson, an heir to the S.C. Johnson household products empire.  

He's charged with a felony count of repeated child sexual assault for alleged improper conduct over three years, starting after the girl completed 6th grade. Prosecutors say the victim refuses to cooperate, and Johnson's counseling records are not being made available -- so the DA's office says the only real chance for a conviction is on a misdemeanor count of fourth-degree sexual assault.

Johnson is the former chairman of Diversey, a cleaning products company that was spun off from S.C. Johnson.
