Guest of Don King Accused of Raping 13-Year-Old Runaway in Manalapan
A 13-year-old girl from Lantana who ran away from home says that she was picked up, then raped by a man who was staying with boxing promoter Don King. According to a police report cited by the Palm Beach Daily News, the man was in a Chevy Suburban. He took her to a beach house, then had sex with her.
From the article:
The man told Lantana police he was with the girl at the King guest house, but did not have any physical contact with her.
He did, however, admit that he had given a guilty plea to a case in which he was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old girl a decade earlier. That's some coincidence, isn't it? A man with a history of abusing minors takes an unescorted minor to a beach house, and she comes out with allegations of sex abuse, along with the physical symptoms of rape. Good luck telling that story to a jury, which is what he'll have to do if the DNA tests come back with a match.
