MILLSBORO, Delaware — Delaware State Police have charged a convicted sex offender with sexually abusing a 3-year-old girl in his car.
Sixty-five-year-old John T. King of Millsboro surrendered to police Wednesday and is charged with unlawful sexual contact by a sex offender, and three counts of sexual abuse by a person of trust.
Troopers say an investigation began after the girl was examined at a hospital after complaining of soreness. Police say the girl had been in the care of King, who is a friend of the girl's mother.
According to Delaware's sex offender registry, King was convicted of unlawful sexual contact in 2005. Troopers say he is a Tier 2 sex offender.
