Russellville man arrested for 3 sex crimes in 3 days | Environment
Russellville, AL (WAFF) - For a third time in less than a week, Russellville Police found themselves filing sex charges against the same man.
54 year old Travis King was first arrested Tuesday, and charged with sexual abuse after a 16 year old girl claimed King groped her as she slept and tried to give her alcohol.
King posted a $50,000 bond and was released.
However, once his crime was reported on WAFF and other media outlets, two more people came forward with allegations against King.
On Wednesday, a woman contacted investigators, saying King tried to pay her for sex several times between 2005 and 2013, while she was staying with King's family. She also made a similar allegation that King tried to grope her. King was charged with soliciting prostitution.
On Thursday, another woman came forward, with much more serious claims. A 53 year old woman told police she was raped by King several times in the last ten years. He's now facing new charges of rape, sodomy and sexual abuse.
King is now being held without bond, and his case will be heard in an upcoming Lauderdale County Grand Jury session.
