Stanislaus County sheriff’s officials have arrested a Riverbank man on suspicion of molesting children at an Oakdale church over the past 27 years.

Fifty-six-year-old Jerry Franklin Johnson is set to be arraigned on multiple felony sex charges Thursday afternoon. The charges are based on victims’ claims that the abuse started as early as 1981.

Authorities started looking into the case last month when a 7-year-old girl told Oakdale police Johnson molested her.

Sheriff’s deputies say all the victims were member of the Church of Christ, and some were Johnson’s relatives.

Since his arrest Tuesday, Johnson has been held in the Stanislaus County jail in lieu of $125,000 bail.
