Only they know what happened between them in the summer of 1995, when she was 16 and he was a star guard for the Phoenix Suns, and each has a different version of events.AdvertisementKoba’s recollections of what happened with Johnson, whom she met when she was 15, have been circulating for years in the form of a police report that includes a transcript of the questioning she was given by Detective Art Smith of the Phoenix Police Department in 1996. You can read that report in full here. In it, she describes Johnson lying naked with her, fondling her breasts and vagina, lathering soap on her in the shower, brushing his penis against her, and asking her to pray to God for forgiveness with him and promise not to tell anyone about what they’d done.There’s long been talk of an artifact of those sessions far more appalling than a .pdf file, though. The police report says that the interview with Koba “was both audio and video taped”—though she now says the police never told her she was on camera—and according to sources in Sacramento, there have been whispers about a video version of her interview with the police ever since Johnson started his first campaign for mayor in 2008.AdvertisementAs it turns out, the rumors weren’t just rumors. Video was taken. Earlier this week, Deadspin obtained a rare copy of Koba’s interview with Phoenix police from 1996. The lengthy video can be watched in full here; a brief clip from it is at the top of this post, and excerpts can be found below.Koba, now 36, recently told Deadspin exactly what she told police 19 years ago: That she met Johnson when she was 15 and he was at the height of his career as the Phoenix Suns’s All-Star point guard, and that shortly thereafter, he began sexually abusing her. After Koba’s story appeared on Deadspin, Johnson gave what seems like a blanket denial to a Sacramento reporter.
