Denell Johnson, 38, of Tulare was arrested Jan. 29 at the 1700 block of West Bane Street in Tulare on suspicion of lewd acts with a minor and annoying or molesting a person under the age of 18. Police investigations have led them to believe there may be more victims.

Johnson was already a registered sex offender prior to being arrested; the Megan’s Law website states that he was previously convicted of “lewd or lascivious acts with a child 14 or 15 years of age and offender 10 or more years older than victim.”
