Paedophile footballer Adam Johnson is attempting to appeal against his conviction and six-year sentence for child sex offences for the second time.

The shamed former Sunderland star first tried to launch a bid to overturn his conviction in July, but his application was thrown out by an appeal court judge.

The 29-year-old, who earned £60,000 a week playing for the Premier League club, could have his case heard within weeks.

In March Johnson was found guilty of sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl in his Range Rover.

He had previously admitted to grooming and less serious charge of sexual activity with the victim.

A Court of Appeal spokesman said: 'The papers are going to a summary writer on the case before a date can be given for the hearing to take place.'

Earlier this week, one of the disgraced footballer's supporters was jailed for harassing the Johnson’s sex abuse victim.

Steven Knox, 30, the ex-boyfriend of Johnson’s sister, was sentenced to 16 weeks for posting photos online of the schoolgirl alongside aggressive messages, and urging others to share them.

He ignored a harassment warning by the police and continued to post about the girl, telling his 3,000 Facebook ‘friends’, she was ‘one attention-seeking girl’.

Thousands saw Knox’s posts, which spawned a barrage of threats directed at the 15-year-old, who said she became ‘paranoid’ and ‘very distressed’.

Johnson’s sister Faye, who has a child by Knox, wept as her ex-partner was led away from Peterlee magistrates’ court after admitting a single harassment charge.

As a victim of a sex crime the teenager is entitled to lifetime anonymity.

District judge Katrina Harrison said it was a ‘very troubling case’.
