The evidence showed that King had been around the victim from ages 9-11 and that he was like a grandparent to the child and a family friend.

The abuse was discovered after the victim’s mother saw the child accessing a cell phone with inappropriate content and reviewed her in-home surveillance which captured King calling the child into the bedroom.

King was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole and he was designated a sexual predator.
