Sunderland Star, Adam Johnson Pleads Guilty To Sexual Activity With A Child As He Appears In Court
Earlier, the football star denied all four charges against him, but at the last minute he changed his plea to guilty on two of the counts.
His girlfiriend Flounders, 26, has stood by Johnson since the claims first emerged. The couple had a baby together just a few weeks before his initial arrest.
The sexual offences are alleged to have taken place at two locations in County Durham on one night in January according to court papers.
The player was initially suspended by Sunderland in the wake of his arrest, but he was then allowed to return to the team.
