RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court must decide whether defendants should get to access mental health records of an alleged molestation victim in a case tied to the criminal prosecution of a billionaire executive from Racine.

Curtis Johnson's attorneys requested therapy records of the 17-year-old girl whom the SC Johnson heir is charged with molesting Johnson, a one-time chairman of a cleaning-products company spun off from SC Johnson, has plead not guilty.

Prosecutors accuse Johnson of having inappropriate sexual contact with the girl 15 to 20 times from 2007 to 2010.

A lower court ruled judges under some circumstances should be able to review such records and release information to lawyers. The state Supreme Court will review that at a Feb. 25 hearing.
