Convicted rapist representing self guilty in robbery
September 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Tony Johnson

A convicted rapist who represented himself against charges he robbed a South San Francisco office worker was convicted after only two hours of jury deliberations of that crime plus kidnapping.

Tony Alfonso Johnson, 52, was also found to have prior convictions. Another count of assault with a firearm was dismissed for insufficient evidence.

Johnson, 52, was linked to the Dec. 6, 2007 robbery by DNA on a bandanna left at the scene that he allegedly used to hide his face and wipe away fingerprints from the furniture. Johnson was reportedly seeking computer laptops at the South San Francisco office but fled with credit cards instead.

The victim’s identification and Johnson’s DNA profile from the sweaty bandanna linked him to the crime after he was arrested in Solano County for gun possession. After his conviction in that case, he returned to San Mateo County where he stood trial as a third-striker.

In 1985, a jury convicted Johnson of sexually assaulting a woman in Pacifica in June 1984. The crime brought him 30 years in prison and made news because he was found to have committed great bodily injury against the woman by passing on a sexually transmitted disease. In the middle of 2007, Johnson was paroled back to San Mateo County.

Johnson acted as his own attorney during the recent trial but is now considering hiring or requesting a court-appointed attorney for sentencing. He returns to court Sept. 11 to set a sentencing date and remains in custody.
