    The Mail now appends....

    However, last night it emerged that King was jailed for three years in 1995 for the ‘debauched’ abuse of a boy who he molested for seven years from the age of four during the 1960s.

    At his trial, King had denied the allegations, insisting his accuser was attempting to blackmail him.

    He said his accuser had warned him he was ‘going to have the money that if I did not help him I would regret it.... If he did not get the money he would drag me…down with him’.

    But he was convicted at Maidstone Crown Court in 1995 of three counts of indecency with a child and three of indecent assault.

    The victim said after King’s conviction that it had sent a ‘shot across the bows’ of child abusers, adding: ‘It was not about vengeance, I did it because I wanted to protect other children.’

    Interesting..i have found some rather interesting things about him doing some research to. Seems like maybe they need to check his other home to.

    I'm always intrigued by missing boaters, but, not so much given his pedophelia convictions.

    Find it hard to believe there was only one victim, poor boy.
