Concord church volunteer, sex offender gets maximum sentence for exposing himself to children
LACONIA — A Concord church volunteer convicted of exposing himself to a group of children near Lake Opechee in the fall of 2014 will spend the next three and half to seven years in prison.
The Laconia Citizen reported Daniel King, 54, was sentenced Tuesday with the prosecutor arguing for the maximum sentence, saying King's criminal record revealed a "a very disturbing pattern of sexual misconduct." King was also ordered to complete a sex offender treatment program as well as an anger management program for an assault on a fellow inmate at Belknap County Jail.
King has spent the majority of his adult life in prison, and when last released, was living in an insulated tent on private land in Concord, said his lawyer Eric Wolpin. The living arrangements and joblessness were the result of the stigma that comes with being a registered sex offender, the defender said.
While in Concord, King volunteered, working nearly full-time with a local church to keep their food pantry stocked, and operating and serving hot meals on cold days to the homeless.
