DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Oscar King, 36, was sentenced on Friday to 85 years in prison for breaking into an apartment and sexually assaulting three sisters, announced Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot.
A Dallas County jury found King guilty of the three felony offenses, and state District Judge Ernest White sentenced King. “It’s a just and right verdict,” said prosecutor Alex Dobiyanski. “This predator is a thief of innocence and must now face the consequences of putting those children through unimaginable horrors for the next 85 years of his life.”
King was convicted this week of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit a sex offense.
The case was presented before a jury in one of the first trials of the year. But jury trials were suspended in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Jury selection resumed June 1.
King broke into a Lake Highlands apartment around 3 a.m. on March 27, 2019. He climbed into the bedroom shared by three sisters, ages 10, 12 and 13. “Shh, or I will kill your family members,” King told one of the girls while attempting to assault her, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
