It’s taken 4 years, 329 website posts, 14 convictions (secured between 2011 and 2015 against King), 3 Statutory investigations by two Ministries of the Crown, 1 landmark Legal case precedent win, 8 media articles, the support and assistance of key King fraud victims and dozens of GNKASS (Grant Norman King Accountability Support Society) supporters, most of whom I have never met, who have been our eyes and ears in the field – but we did it!
Grant Norman King spends his first night tonight in Mt Eden Prison, beginning an 18 month term of imprisonment.
The end, when it came, was a pathetic display by Grant King, as he simpered, pleaded, and tried to manipulate the Judge and the legal system one last time.
In the dock, King pleaded “mitigating circumstances” – the Judge said “None that warrant consideration in this matter”;
King then tried “humanitarian grounds on basis of looking after dependent (19 and 27 years of age is dependent?) young women” – the Judge said “You should have thought of that before you committed your crimes”;
King then had a go at the “It’s coming up to Christmas, can we take the time of year into consideration?” -the Judge said “We don’t decide different sentences on the basis of the time of year, but on the basis of the law and the appropriate legal precedents / authorities – every authority I have canvassed says you should receive a jail sentence”.
Then it was “I don’t want to be 62 years-old and on the scrapheap, I was just being entrepreneurial and didn’t mean any harm to anyone – I just made a mistake” – the Judge said “You are a brazen and recidivist offender who conducts a charade of outward compliance whilst misleading the authorities, and you have a long history of offending, characterised by a strong sense of entitlement towards other peoples money”.
Kings last attempt at some sort of freedom then lay with his Amicus to assist the Court, who suggested that a sentence of Home Detention would meet the “deterrence” requirement for King to change his ways, whilst protecting the public – the Judge said “Home Detention is an inadequate sentencing for this level of offending”.
Immediately on being sentenced on 6 jail term convictions (all to be served concurrently, the longest sentence being 18 months imprisonment), King applied for bail pending an Appeal of his sentencing – after a brief Adjournment, the Judge said “Application denied”.
The on-duty Policeman in the dock then reached for his handcuffs, while Grant “Levi Ponyboy” King / Grant Good / George Good / Grant Norman / Grant Melrose (and all his other online aliases) and his daughter Sequoia King sobbed up a storm – it was like watching two people who had been living in the twilight zone their entire lives finally wake up to reality – and it wasn’t at all pretty to watch.
Grant Norman King, who has amassed over 40 offences in his criminal logbook of life, who even now has over $20,000 of fines owing to the Crown, who sold the Chinese investors in Tern Anchor and Trident Cycles down the river for over $300,000, who hid over $58,000 of income from the Official Assignee this time around, and who has amassed nearly $4 million dollars of fraud against 71 victims of fraud in the past 33 years, was led away, crying and sniffling like the proverbial baby.
I can’t imagine Mr King is going have a very pleasant time in Jail as a historically convicted sex offender.
Double-bunking at Mt Eden Prison should be fun too, I would imagine.
Gotcha, you prick.
The above is just a “taster” of the full story, which I have tonight had confirmed is being scheduled for publication within the next 1-2 weeks with an exclusive media organisation.
I have screeds of documents to publish as well, and I will release these documents on the website on the day the exclusive media news article is published.
