The packed courtroom listened in silence as Judge Rose repeated how Johnson had kissed and sexually touched the girl in his Range Rover, in a secluded spot in County Durham, on January 30 last year.
The judge told the player the offences happened "at a time when you were engaged in frequent sexual intercourse with multiple partners".
And he outlined how various medical professionals had agreed he suffered from "compulsive sexual behaviour".
According to the judge, Johnson told a psychiatrist: "I treated (the teenager) like any of the girls I met.
"I put her age out of my mind. I was sexually interested but she was just another girl, another opportunity. She was attractive enough. Another one to get with."
The judge said to him: "When you had moved to play for Manchester City you embarked on an extensive social life which involved sexual activity on a very frequent basis with a number of different partners, even when you were ostensibly in a settled relationship.
"You do not suffer from any mental illness but are described as having a very high libido and a tendency to engage in sexual activity to a compulsive degree."
Magista Radiant Reveal UK The judge said Johnson, who ran past photographers into the court building but sauntered into the dock chewing gum, will need treatment for his sexual problems.
Judge Rose outlined how Johnson's offending happened when he met the girl for a second time after exchanging hundreds of social media messages with her.
The first time they met he gave her a signed football shirt and, when they met again, he asked for his "thank you kiss".
Johnson admitted kissing the girl but denied the girl's claim that he touched her inside her pants and how she then performed oral sex on him.
A jury found him guilty of sexual activity with a child in relation to "digital penetration" but cleared him of the same offence relating to the oral sex.
He had already admitted another charge of sexual activity with a child in relation to kissing and also of grooming the girl.
The judge said Johnson had lied repeatedly, referring as he did so to the controversy over whether he delayed his guilty pleas to enable him to continue his £60,000-a-week career with Sunderland.
Tech Craft Black White UK The judge said: "You lied about the nature and extent of your contact with her and you lied then and throughout the months which followed about the level of your sexual activity with her.
"You had every opportunity to enter guilty pleas to the matters you finally admitted to the court but you chose not to do so, and one consequence of that is that (the girl) was regarded as a liar, by her peers and by the football supporters who would chant abuse about her.
"Little wonder that by the time of this trial she had, in her words, endured a year of abuse, of being called a liar and other more graphic insults, and was deeply upset by what you had done to her and by her treatment, such that she required counselling and such that she reached the lowest ebb after she gave evidence."
He added: "She speaks of entering many dark places in that year and said she had suffered bullying and stress and had underachieved at school as a result of the case."
The judge said: "I am satisfied that (the girl) has suffered severe psychological harm and have no doubt that I should take this into account."
She had suffered sadness, anger and confusion which had been "exasperated" because of the footballer's status and standing, he said.
The judge said Johnson must pay £50,000 of the prosecution's £67,132 costs.

Johnson appeared without the support of former partner Stacey Flounders, the mother of his one-year-old daughter, and his sister, Faye Johnson, who used a Facebook post to say she would not attend the hearing because she did not want her brother "to see the pain in my eyes".
Earlier, Kate Blackwell QC, prosecuting, told the judge that Johnson had a history of meeting girls for sex, describing it as a "clandestine habit".
Miss Blackwell said a medical report concluded Johnson "believes he has a right to sex".
Dr Philip Hopley, a consultant psychiatrist giving evidence for the defence, told the court: "This is a man who, at the age of 28, is socially and psychologically immature."
Mercurial Superfly CR7 Natural Diamond Uk Dr Hopley said Johnson developed very late physically and had low self-confidence as a youngster.
He said he believed that as a professional footballer Johnson developed his confidence and self-esteem very quickly and this, combined with the availability of willing women, led to his "compulsive sexual behaviour".
The doctor said he found no evidence in Johnson of an attraction to pre-pubescent children or "sexual perversion".
Hypervenom Radiant Reveal Pack Orlando Pownall, defending, told the judge: "He has lost a lucrative career he will never be able to retrieve. He has been stripped of his England caps. He has been made the subject of national humiliation and these are all aspects of punishment that arise from his pleas and conviction."
He added that Johnson's conduct towards women "is, and could properly be described as deplorable".
The QC added: "He does not pose a significant risk of harm to children, for (victim) was not selected on her age but despite her age."
He said that despite the huge publicity surrounding the case, no other under-age girls have complained about Johnson.
"This is not the case of a predatory paedophile who has sought out children for sexual purposes," he said.
"This was an aberration."
Despite Mr Pownall's assertion about Johnson's England caps, Press Association Sport understands that the player has not been stripped of the 12 he has been awarded.
Johnson made his England debut against Mexico on May 24, 2010 and made four starts and eight substitute appearances in the next two years. Five of his appearances were in competitive matches and both his England goals came in European Championship qualifying fixtures. His final England appearance was against Italy on August 15, 2012.
No other England internationals with criminal convictions have had their caps stripped.
