Belton: Teen admits to raping underage girl as she slept
Dakota James Meyer-Johnson, 19, of Temple, who’s jailed on a sexual assault of a child charge, admitted to raping an underage girl as she slept, according to an affidavit released Monday.
His bond is set at $100,000.
Meyer-Johnson was arrested on Dec. 20 in connection with the incident, which occurred on Nov. 9 in Belton.
He was taken into custody after the incident on unrelated Belton warrants and was taken to the Temple Police Department where he waived his Miranda rights and told an investigator he fondled the girl over her clothing and then engaged in sexual intercourse with her, the affidavit says.
He told the investigator that when the girl woke up, she “asked him why her pants were off.”
The victim, who's younger than 17, was later interviewed at the Children’s Advocacy Center in Belton where she said Meyer-Johnson, whom she described as a family friend, was hanging out in her room when she fell asleep.
“When she woke up she realized she did not have on any clothing from the waist down and found her clothing on the floor,” the affidavit says.
“The victim stated that after she woke up, Dakota Meyer-Johnson got on top of her and she began trying to push him off of her,” the affidavit says.
“She was able to get away at some point and went to the bathroom and secured the door, the affidavit says.”
