The mother of Kendrick Johnson, the Black teen who was found dead in a gym mat, has issued a cry for help. Jackie Johnson has posted to her Facebook page startling news. According to her, a witness to the assault on her son has been arrested on charges of criminal trespass, shortly after she filed paperwork regarding his testimony.

Her post reads as follows:

“Is this witness tampering once again on behalf of the Kendrick Johnson case?
Boy when I tell you Lowndes county is full of s–t we had a witness come forward in Kendrick Johnson case and now all of a sudden he’s in Lowndes county jail for allegedly trespassing boy these folks are something else but [no] news covered that but covered what the judge porter said about 300k was all over the news this is the 2nd person that told what happen to Kj they took them to jail for bogus charges and then recanted they own story! The lil news lady text my phone for the 300k about [Judge] Porter but never text about the witness that came forward they want to hush him up and allegedly cover this up. I filed these charges August 7, 2017, at 10:06 am that’s when Porter just through his ruling in never getting back to our attorney or nothing anything to allegedly stop the truth from coming out about Kendrick ‘Kj’ Johnson

“THEY ARE TRYING TO SILENCE HIM!

“Please share this post, with all news site radio shows CNN new one channel 6 10 27 Steve Harvey Rickey Smiley and anyone you can think of Valdosta needs to be put on the news for all this  Tweet Instagram.”

Along with the post were images of court documents and proof that Ryan Anthony Domek-Hernandez is in the Lowndes County Jail. Surprisingly, his criminal trespass charges are listed as not eligible for bail, that is unusual because criminal trespass is considered a misdemeanor in most cases and a bail should be posted, according to well-known social activist attorney Mawuli Davis of the Davis-Bozeman Law Firm.
