As the verdict was handed down earlier this month, Judge Rose warned Johnson that a custodial sentence was "almost inevitable" with an anticipated starting point of around five years.

Releasing him on bail, the judge added: "I am giving bail so you can say goodbye to your baby daughter, and anticipate a prison sentence that means you will not see her for some time.”
