McGillis Rapist Facing Fresh Charges

A man convicted of raping American actress KELLY MCGILLIS went on trial yesterday (07JUN06) for allegedly attacking two women in 1996. The TOP GUN star was raped by LEROY JOHNSON JR in 1982 when she was an aspiring actress living in New York City. Johnson, who was 15 at the time of the attack, was picked out by MCGillis from police mugshots and was convicted with fingerprint evidence. Johnson was sentenced to serve time at a state juvenile facility, but he quickly escaped before being apprehended and incarcerated in prison until 1991. However, jurors at Manhattan Supreme Court will not be told of the attack on MCGillis because it happened over 10 years ago. Johnson, now 39, is accused of breaking into the women's home and attacking them at knifepoint.
