Billionaire businessman Curtis Johnson has been charged in Wisconsin with having repeated sexual contact with a now 15-year-old girl over several years.

The 55-year-old was charged Thursday with sexual assault of a child. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison.

Johnson is the former chairman of Sturtevant-based Diversey Inc., a cleaning-products company that was spun off from SC Johnson in the late 1990s. A Diversey spokesman says Johnson has retired and has no ongoing role with the company.

Messages for Johnson's two lawyers were not immediately returned Thursday.

The criminal complaint says Johnson had inappropriate sexual contact with the girl 15 to 20 times. The girl told investigators Johnson wanted to have sex with her, but she refused.

Johnson's cash bail was set at $500,000.
