Johnson Trial Resumes, Accuser Gives Her Account
The woman was the only witness to testify Wednesday
MISSOULA — The woman who accused former University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson of raping her a year ago said Wednesday that she had been kissing Johnson while the two watched a movie when he "just changed into a totally different person."

She tearfully testified that he pinned her to her bed and raped her. She said she told him "no" several times.

Johnson is charged with sexual intercourse without consent. He has said the sex was consensual.

Assistant Attorney General Joel Thompson asked her why she didn't call out to her housemate, who was in the next room. She said she was terrified, in shock and couldn't scream.

"You know how when you have those dreams and you want to scream so bad, but you can't? It was like that," she said.

She said after she drove Johnson back to his house she returned home and cried so hard she had trouble breathing.

The woman was the only witness to testify Wednesday.

On cross examination, the woman acknowledged she talked with Johnson about the use of a condom during their encounter. She also said she should have screamed out for her roommate and should have made Johnson walk home afterward rather than driving him home.

Defense attorney David Paoli asked the woman if she remembered texting a friend in December 2011, about six weeks before the alleged rape. The woman confirmed that she told a friend then that she had a nightmare about being raped by a teammate of the player accused in the case.
