A billionaire heir of Racine, Wis.-based SC Johnson home products was charged Thursday with sexually assaulting his stepdaughter.

According to a criminal complaint posted by Forbes, Samuel Curtis Johnson III faces up to 40 years in prison for allegedly assaulting the girl, now 15 years old, between 10 and 15 times.

In the document, Johnson’s stepdaughter was identified as "T.S." She told a Racine County Sheriff's Department investigator there was a "touching problem" with Johnson and that he's addicted to sex.

"He molested me," she told the investigator, according to the complaint.

She went on to say that Johnson tried to kiss her and inappropriately touch her, among other things identified in the complaint. She said she eventually told her mom in order to protect her younger sisters.

SC Johnson, touted "A Family Company," sells products such as Glade, Pledge and Windex
