Storyline

NO CRIME IN SIN is a story about confronting a traumatic past and reclaiming the future. Kristy and Kathy Johnson were sexually abused by their father over the course of decades. Because the Johnsons were active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon Church), clergy knew about this recurring abuse, did nothing to stop it, and ended up putting countless other children at risk as a result. Since the late 1980s, Kristy Johnson and her siblings have been plagued by unanswered questions about why their father never served time in prison and why the Mormon Church never intervened to help them.

I first met Christy and her family 40 years ago. I knew the family well and took religious classes from her father, as so many of us did in the Huntington Beach, CA area. I clearly remember when Christy first tried to tell her story as a teenager to expose her fathers evil acts and the extreme push back she received from the religious community and others. It was so tragic then as it is now for so many who have been abused. I am glad to see Christy and two of her siblings work so hard to find justice in their lives and give strength to others who have been abused to come forward, overcome and hopefully find peace that they all deserve. I was at the premiere, thanks to Christy's invite, and found the movie riveting, insightful and powerful.
