A man who terrorized a Japanese tourist and her 4-year-old daughter in the Tenderloin earlier this year was sentenced to jail Monday after being found guilty of indecent exposure, the District Attorney's Office said Wednesday.

Paul Donovan Johnson, 40, was sentenced to 233 days in county jail, but is likely to be released soon due to time served, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

Johnson was arrested Jan. 16 after he followed and harassed the victims from their hotel into a liquor store in the Tenderloin where they sought shelter. Once there, the shopkeepers helped shoo Johnson out of the store. Johnson then told them "you can have the girl" and exposed himself.

Johnson reportedly told the shopkeepers that she was the one seducing him because of the clothes she was wearing. He was arrested shortly after.

Johnson, who has a history of crime including a conviction of lewd acts with a child under 15 in Colorado and resisting arrest in San Francisco, will be forced to register as a sex offender for life as part of his sentence, Bastian said.
