Last Update: 7/13/2020
A former housing case worker for the Auburn Family Center homeless shelter in Fort Greene, Brooklyn has been convicted of groping 3 women who were seeking help at the shelter.
A jury convicted 56-year-old Clyde Johnson of three counts of forcible touching and one count of third-degree sexual abuse before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Laura Johnson.
The DA’s office alleged that Johnson sexually abused three residents of the shelter in four separate incidents.
In April 2017, prosecutors said he groped a resident during a meeting on her housing situation.
In July of 2018, Johnson rubbed up against a shelter resident’s backside while she was at a deli near the shelter and said “this is a stickup,” according to prosecutors. One month later, he groped a third woman who had visited his office for assistance with her housing situation, according to the DA’s office.
Johnson is scheduled to be sentenced on December 16 and faces up to two years in prison.
