Political leader charged with sex crimes

DURHAM, NC Sources tell Eyewitness News it was a satanic ritual that got out of hand.

Arrest warrants allege Joy Johnson, a vice chair woman of the Durham County Democratic Party watched as her husband, Joseph Craig, beat and raped a female victim then kidnapped and beat another male victim with a wooden cane and a cable cord.

Craig is charged with second degree rape and kidnapping. Johnson faces felony charges of aiding and abetting the crimes which allegedly happened in the past six months.

The couple is out of jail on bond. They've been ordered not to have any contact with the victims.
