Johnson Wax heir Samuel Curtis Johnson III, who recently left his position as Chairman of Racine based Diversey, Incorporated, has been charged with the repeated sexual assault of a child. The billionaire son of the late Samuel Johnson appeared in Racine County Circuit Court Thursday afternoon, where he was accused of assaulting a now 15 year-old girl as many as 15 to 20 times. Johnson was released on a $500,000 bond and ordered to have no contact with the victim or any other minor female unless in the presence of another adult. Citing only personal reasons, Johnson recently took a leave of absence at Diversey, a former Johnson Wax subsidiary, with his sister, Helen Johnson Leopold, taking his place. The Racine County Sheriff’s Department investigated the allegations.
