Susan Johnson-JD Madison

Officers with the Mount Pleasant Police Department have charged Susan Johnson with filing a false police report in which she accused John David (JD) Madison of sexually assaulting her.

Inspector Chip Googe with Mount Pleasant police said detectives uncovered inconsistencies in Susan’s story during their investigation and obtained evidence indicating the allegations were untrue.

Susan claimed she was assaulted on the 21st August, 2017. She reported it on the 28th August, 2018. She initially told investigators that she was sexually assaulted the night of the solar eclipse. She also claimed that JD  intentionally broke a glass, and when she went to clean it up, JD and his friend slipped a drug in her drink.

According to a police report, Susan said she did not remember anything from that point until she was at a restaurant and not “feeling right” and felt that she had been drugged. She then remembered waking up in a guest bedroom where JD “forcibly” raped her. Susan was being held at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center after a judge set bond at $10,000, jail records state and has since been released.

A representative of JD’s released a statement that said in part:

JD Madison was never charged or arrested as the Mount Pleasant Police Department did not find any credible evidence to support her claims. We are grateful that the Mount Pleasant Police Department fully investigated this case and determined that these accusations were completely false.”

Attorney Trey Harrell, who represents Susan, released the following statement:

“Susan is going to fight this unfair, unfounded charge. She was severely intoxicated on the night in question and so naturally there are some inconsistencies in her recollection. Such inconsistencies do not make her a liar, and they certainly do not make her a criminal. Susan does not remember sending any of the messages -or making any of the phone calls – that police are using as ‘evidence’ to dispute her recollection of what happened. And the fact police are charging her based on their ‘belief’ that she lied about what happened is absolutely unconscionable. Not only is such a charge unfair to my client, it could have a chilling effect on other women who believe they have been similarly victimized. My client is innocent of this charge and intends to defend herself vigorously in court.”
