Rob and Marie Johnson

Rob Johnson, 44, and his wife, Marie Johnson, 43, from Port St. Lucie, Florida were on Tuesday, August 11 arrested for allegedly turning a 13-year-old girl into their sex slave.

All through the years of abuse, Rob Johnson held Sunday school classes for his family at their home, invoking Old Testament Bible Passages to justify their perversion.

According to the Port St. Lucie Police Department, the teenager was told by the couple she could only stay if she had sex with them.

The girl also told investigators that she was forced to call Rob “master,” and that Marie Johnson had pushed her against a wall and held her by her throat until she agreed to the meet their sexual demands.

When she failed to follow the couple's directions or complete her chores, she was severely beaten.

The girl, who has not been identified said that the abuse happened repeatedly for five years until she was 18 years old.

She was home schooled, not allowed to communicate with the outside world and made to rehearse what to say to doctors if she was ever asked about her sexual history.

The Johnsons were freed on bail after appearing at St Lucie County Court on Tuesday.
