GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — A former employee of Page High School is facing multiple child sex crime charges, according to court records.

Mark Johnson Jr, 34, is being charged with two counts each of first-degree statutory rape and indecent liberties with children, according to Guilford County inmate records. Johnson was booked in the Greensboro Detention Center on Friday at 9:11 p.m. and is being held on a $1 million bond.

Johnson’s employment at Page began on August 16, 2022, according to a public information request filed with the school district. He resigned from his position at Page on Wednesday.
