Staff Report


An Artemus man indicted nearly two years ago on charges of first-degree sexual abuse and sodomy, was back in court in front of Judge Tom Jensen. Donald King, 59, held fast to his original Alford Plea.

In an Alford plea, the defendant does not admit the act, but does acknowledge that there is enough evidence to convict them.

Jensen sentenced King to eight years. He was immediately transferred to the Leslie County Detention Center.
