CHRISTOPHER T. KING, 30, pleaded guilty Feb. 1 to burglary as part of a plea agreement in which counts of disposing of stolen property and escape were dismissed. Attorneys will present their recommendations for his sentence at his sentencing hearing. But he will pay restitution in full from the burglary as part of the agreement. He is accused of taking two gold and diamond necklaces worth $3,100, two sets of diamond earrings valued at $3,000 and two gold rings valued at $600 from an apartment in 2019. King allegedly visited the apartment while the occupants were out of town and had another family member staying there. He had noticed the master bedroom was opened and questioned King about it, but found nothing missing. The owner of the jewelry discovered that it had been sold to Marshall’s for $511. King reportedly had asked another woman to sell the jewelry because he needed money for rent and it wasn’t until later that she discovered that it had been stolen and he had lied to her about it, according to court documents. King also was identified as an escapee from the Volunteers of America community corrections program.
