Victim Advocate Arrested for Grand Theft in Jacksonville

A Justice Coalition accounting manager has been arrested in Jacksonville for grand theft, a third degree felony. Terri Johnson is accused of stealing over $45,000 from the organization. The Justice Coalition considers themselves an advocate for victims of violent crimes in Jacksonville, such as homicide, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault.

The Justice Coalition publishes a newspaper called the Victim’s Advocate. In it, they praise police officers and have a section called Shame, Shame, Shame. In this section, they publish pictures and names of people who have been arrested for offering for prostitution or soliciting for prostitution. In small writing, it says they “(h)ave not been convicted of the crime for which they were arrested. This information does not in any way imply or infer guilt”. It is interesting that the Justice Coalition does not believe the words, “shame, shame, shame” do no imply or infer guilt.

Perhaps they should put Ms. Johnson’s picture and name on the shame page or Jacksonville police officers who have been arrested in the past year. Here are the police officers with pending felony charges in Jacksonville:

Marc Garza – Felony Official Misconduct and Falsely Reporting the Commission of a Crime
David Cervone – Felony Official Misconduct and Falsely Reporting the Commission of a Crime
James Toner – False Imprisonment and Battery
