“Parents expect that the wellbeing of their child is held in highest regard by those appointed to positions of trust,” said Fort Collins Police Assistant Chief Kristy Volesky, who oversees the Criminal Investigations Division. “This is an intolerable abuse of his responsibility as an educator and we are saddened by the prospect there may be more victims. Our detectives and Victim Services Unit are working to ensure these students receive the support they need during this difficult and emotional time. Now that King has been arrested, we hope any additional victims feel safe to report to us.”

Anyone who has information related to the case is asked to contact Detective Justin Butler at 970-221-6340 or Larimer County Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6969.
