America's most innovative pro-life organization

King, Andrew Asa

Location: CA

King, 61, was a nationally recognized girls swim coach whose students included potential Olympians.  Authorities say that, in 1980, he impregnated “Denise” and the 14-year-old was taken to Planned Parenthood for an abortion.  It is clear no report was filed since the situation remained hidden until 2009.  At that point, swimmers who had been coached by King connected through Facebook and began discussing the sexual abuse they had endured.  After one of these victims went to the authorities, an investigation uncovered that King had engaged in sexual relations with dozens of his students starting in 1978 and that he targeted girls ages 10 to 17.  He was subsequently sentenced to 40 years in prison.  [Mercury News, 11-19-2009 • 11-20-2009 • Associated Press, 1-30-2010 • The Blotter (ABC News) 4-9-2010 • Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, People of the State of California v.
