Woman Jailed For False Reports Of PFA Violation

An Eldred woman was jailed today on charges
of false reports, after accusing her ex-husband of violating a Protection From Abuse order.


Sonya Elaine Johnston, 45, of Eldred, PA, falsely accused her ex-husband Mark Johnston, 43, of Eldred, PA, of violating a PFA order. Troopers said Sonya Johnston provided written and verbal false statements and information accusing her ex-husband of a crime.

She was charged with UNSWORN FALSIFICATION TO AUTHORITIES; FALSE REPORTS TO LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES; AND HARASSMENT.

She was arraigned before District Judge Todd and remanded to the McKean County Jail in lieu of $7,500.00 bail.

It is hard to believe this how can someone be out on bail and get a new bail??

It's hard enough to first get the pfa and second to make it stick for real abuse victims. Then to have this woman falsify a violation of one makes me sick.

And how is it that the people who are responding to this post know more than what is in the article? Could it be that maybe you were involved in the problem?

The real abuse victim in this case is the woman who's ex-husband is using family and friends along with the system to continually harrass his ex-wife. And the system helps him right out. Of course he has it all on tape so he couldn't be lying.

I wonder where the article is on the ex-husband when he was arrested for harrassment on July 31, 2010. It seems odd that Sonya Johnston's arrests are the only ones that find their way onto Solomon's Words.

Tit for Tat seems only fair in a "He said. She said" situation such as this one. As usual though, it's easy for others to judge when they are not involved.

Okonkwo Indian's saying "Don't judge a man until you have walked a mile in his moccasins"

the bible always has a answer 4 things. "Do you not know this from old, since man was placed on earth, that the exulting of the wicked are short, and the joy of the godless but for a moment?"

We are concerned that men are being taught that they are god-like in their relationship to women within the church and home. As the mothers, wives, and daughters of these men, it is our concern that this doctrine is setting them up for failure as Christian fathers, husbands and sons. we are concerned that men who are taught that they have Male Headship over a home and church do not feel that they are accountable for abusive attitudes and actions towards women.

In this instance God is not to be used to hide behind as a reason to subject a wife to years of humiliation and dominance. Nor is he the tool to be used by this man's family to condemn the behavior of a batter woman who endured years of slavery and violence at the hands of the man who swore to love and protect.

Maybe a true Christian would know these words: God is not a swear word that I should swear I know Him when I do not; He is the WORD itself and without Him I can speak nothing.

If you are going to use quotes to reprimand someone, you should really get your facts straight first. Okonkwo is the protagonist of Chinua Achebe's 1958 novel Things Fall Apart. A rash warrior who acts upon impulse, he is the first in a series of tragic heroes appearing in the novels of Chinua Achebe

The proverb actually goes: "Do not judge your neighbor until you walk two moons in his moccasins." - A Cheyenne Proverb

To be truly effective in chastising another, you must first be smarter and not merely spiteful and full of hatred for your fellow human being.

Is there hatred within these blogs? i have not read any negativity..Just good points, Is this woman a woman of heart that has been arressted for the crimes? I know the answer and know that justice is not being portrayed.. I want answers!in PA or in any other state for that matter, a person can not be found guilty unless PROVEN OTHER WISE! This is a poor me situation! VERY SAD

Is this what the rights are by law?
You have the right to remain silent anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law! You have a right to an attorney if you can not afford one one will be appointed to you! Did the newspaper say what she plead guilty or not? Does she have any family around here? Why does she stay here if such things are being done to her..that makse no sense.. ~confused~

Anonymous said...

Your are absolutely right. Justice is not being portrayed. This is a situation where one person can lie and make people believe the truth and others can't. This isn't a situation where a woman deliberately made a false statement to police to get her ex-husband in trouble. This is a case where a woman was ran off the road by someone driving her ex-husband's truck and the police wanting a bad guy. Instead of arresting the person who WAS driving the truck, they arrested the woman who is scared of being killed by an abusive, manipulative family. I know the truth also, however, I know the real truth as an outsider watching this story unfold from beginning to end.

I am not a member of any family, nor friend, but someone who knows all the parties, and knows the truth from the lies and deceptions. I am the truth teller.

I don't see negativity, nor do I see good points. I do see a sister thumping her bible to help her brother look like a saint annointed by God himself, who would never hurt a fly, let alone someone he once professed to love. But as stated previously, this man is not a saint. He was also arrested for harassment and trespassing, but that seems to be alright, because as so stated... this is a poor me situation! She must have forced him to break the law. Slap her hand for being so mean to such a nice guy.

Krista said...

The true belief is that a person is innocent until proven guilty, but that only applies to people whose name is not Sonya Johnston. In her case there is no hearing or trial necessary. She did it! So throw her in jail and throw away the key so Mr. Johnston is not in anymore danger from a woman who wants nothing more than to be left alone to live her life away from her ex-husband and his family.

Faith said...

I'm sorry none of you know the truth about this situation.
The Bible clearly teaches Male Headship. It also teaches husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the church.And there is a greater accountability for ANYONE (husband or MOTHER)that has a role of authority.Which is why as a christian mom I am teaching my boys to defend and protect their sisters and future wives, to lay down their life if necessary,just as Jesus did! Which is why my sons are so angry that their little sisters are having obsenities yelled at them and being flipped off.And it isn't the ex-husband or his family doing it!!! I reported it to the police and they said its legal in PA!This is freedom of speech?? And you better believe I CONDEMN this behavior!What about the rights of a child??It is not ok for a MAN or WOMAN to take away the innocence of a child!How spiteful and hateful must a person be to flip off 3 little girls 6,7, and 8 yrs old while they are playing doll babies in the front lawn?Or scream profanity at them while they are selling lemonade? We pray for everyone in this situation to get saved!!!!

Mark said...

It's not that difficult to get a PFA in PA. Claim someone threw a rock and hit you in the leg. PFA granted. Then have your family use it so you can hide and still cause problems.

She does want to leave the area, but by having her repeatedly arrested on frivoulous charges, ex-husband makes sure she cannot move out of the area. She did not plead guilty to anything, but until this matter is heard in a court of law she is bound to remain under the scrutiny of those people she wants to get away from. My confusion is in why the ex-husband cares so much about keeping her here when he has already found a new "true love" and supposedly moving on with his life. If that is how he feels, then leave her alone to go on with hers, instead of terrorizing her and her family. ~concerned~

Krista said...

Faith, you can lie in a court of law, and you can lie to others, but God knows the truth. Shame on you for using your children in this issue. I will pray for your soul and that of your family. Only you and your God actually know the truth about how you have acted in this matter as you continue this sinful path of hatred. I truly feel sorry for your children. May they someday understand why you have made the choices that you have made. What a hateful life for a "Christian".

SAD SAD SAD! Christians, Does the bible talk about adultry, lieing, and stealing?
1. Stealing: One is considered stealing while sleeping with anothers husband
2. ADULTRY: When one commits relation whil a. married or B. a married boyfriend
3. Lieing: When one puts filth out of ones mouth to hurt someone

What are the 10 commandments and should one follow them? Please faith or Krista or Mark enlight me on the 10 commandments:

I to are a victim and I to say my ten commandments were not desired to follow in ones shoes :(VERY VERY SAD!

I feel if Ms. Johnstons is as religious as one,my 10 commandments would not have been violated

Faith said...

What is your real name Krista?I gave mine!!!!! I don't lie!!! I have nothing to hide, as a matter of fact I have legal documents proving one of Sonya's friends lied on a sworn document to the authorities!I also have legal documents that Sonya lied on! We also have video! If you want to SEE the truth please feel free to stop by my moms house, I want the world to know the truth!Shame on you for lying!! " The truth WILL come out because the Bible says "...and be sure your sin will find you out." MY GOD does know the truth as you will find out, hopefully not too late! I love and care for my children,I don't swear at them or threaten to punch them in the face! Yeah there were witnesses there that day also!!Please feel free to stop by and ask the kids about all the horrible stuff thats been done to them also, they would like to see justice done as well!!!!

Krista said...

I gave you my real name. I have nothing to hide. I have nothing to do with this other than knowing what is really going on in this situation. I have no idea why you would have video tapes of what is happening or what your neighbors are doing. I have driven by and seen your family putting video cameras in the trees. Why?? It's against the law to use any video tape you capture without consent of ALL parties. That seems to be something your family likes to do though. I am sure you'd like to show me video, but I don't need to see anything or hear anything you have to say. As far as I know you live out of state, so how would you know what happens in PA.

I hope the truth does come out. And I will be standing on the sidelines watching them haul every felon in your family to jail again.

I have been an abused wife, and it took me years to escape the abuse, both mental and physical. I know the signs and the behavior and I see it all coming out in this matter.

I wash my hands of this entire conversation. I can sleep peacefully at night knowing that I do not lie to get my way, nor do I have to hurt others to make myself feel better.

I writing in deeponcern that a person would say the things they have in these BLOGS: Why would someone be arrested for such crime if the police did not have enough evidence to prove someone guilty? I reviewed the two documents to find these charges were not against Mr. Johnston, but against brothers ect. Where does this obtain to Ms. Johnstons charges?
I find it motivating that as reviewing the sitation justice was served! At this point I would think that our tax dollars are being wasted on people that have just way to much time on there hands and need the attention! I do believe in a medicine book that would clearly describe some as having psychiatric behaviors. My sincere sympothy goes to Ms. Johnston, in hope she will recieve th REAL help she deserves.. concerned citizen of PA

If he is such a bad guy, why did she marry him twice?

Faith said...

My brother asked Sonya to move to the house on the other side of town,next to her friends,away from my parents.She refused!the divorce started one year ago.The charges have only been on her a few months,so why didn't she move before then?She has access to a house in IL,why didn"t she go there.It's not like she didn"t have options!My brother has his house up for sale,as the whole world can see, and is now having to move even further away to have some peace in his life.My brother has voluntarily stayed away from my parents house since before Christmas.But she still goes to her friends next door to him??? He has found a caring companion,that truly loves him.They just bought their dream home...he IS moving on with his life.We wish Sonya would do the same.

peanut said...

Is she only trying to ruin his life?
Isn't she hurting others that was NOT involved?
Didn't she accuse others not related for throwing stones?
Didn't she hurt a family and tear a little girls home apart, by betrayal?

Yes, Mr. Johnston has charges pending from the ex-wife's friends due to their partying with loud music into the wee hours. Mr. Johnston had just asked them to turn it off by 11pm and was threatened by them on and harassed. The neighbors had lied on the report and will be discussed about later. Yes videos/tapes are worth a thousand!So now Mr. Johnston had a refrain to report charges on them, sadly.

Mr. Johnston is moving on with his life, but the ex seems to be always throwing a curve ball at Mr. Johnston, and yes the papers still are not signed from my perception. I guess the ex hasn't given him all his military (21 years) awards/papers and pictures.

And yes there are several charges on the ex-wife here. Please look under pacourt with the name and you will see. There are 2 other instances still pending. There is another summary on the internet with guilty pleas.

Everyone just needs to move on please.

And yes the ex has had the state police to the neighborhood 25+ times with the games. What a waste of tax payor dollars! Please pray for her.

It is sad that at this point the state police are tired of going out there, aren't they? They probly have to be sick of this and are going to start arressting EVERYONE! What if a major tragedy happens they will take there time thinking it is just Sonya making her poor me... I feel bad for everyone in this situation! PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU SONYA!

me- why can't you just stay out of it Faith? I know both Mark and Sonja and they are divorced now. Why can't you just stay out of it and let people go on with their lives> It's their life and all you do is keep stiring it up. You can't keep your own life straight why keep messing with theirs? You should get a life and move on.
