This article reads that he had a clean record!
However, he was convicted in the 1990's of receiving stolen property. He was given a second chance and his punishment was the diversion program.
As far as being innocent...it doesn't appear that anyone believes that-otherwise he wouldn't be doing 22 months in prison.

i know maurice and the informant. the informant had just been busted in a sting involving a truckload of stolen property ( and on top of that he is and was the local drug dealer ). The ATF busted the informant and just because he struck a deal with a metrich officer , whom by the way was an enemy of maurices, to nail maurice ( there's alot of other details ) now the only reason maurice got convicted was because he had metrich against him. Planting evidence so on an so forth. The news journal and other media outlets are controlled by the government so don't believe everything you read, everything is biased. They put away an innocent man!! on top of that how many people would've gotten that sentence, most other people would've gotten 30 days jail sentence and a year n half suspended , plus probation. We're thinking of you maurice, we know what happened and we're trying to get the evidence to free you!!

MAURICE WAS TRIED AND CONVICTED OF HIS CRIME, BY A JURY OF HIS PEERS. HE IS GUILTY THAT'S A PROVEN FACT GET OVER IT. HE A CRIMINAL AND HAS BEEN ONE FOR A LONG TIME, HE JUST FINALLY GOT CAUGHT WITH HIS HANDS DIRTY. ALOT OF PEOPLE IN THE BELLVILLE AREA HAVE KNOWN FOR A LONG TIME THAT HE WAS A THIEF. LISA IS NO BETTER, YOU CAN'T TELL ME THAT SHE WAS NOT AWARE OF ALL THE STUFF HE WAS IN. SHE BENEFITED FROM HIS STICKY FINGERS. SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE A NURSING LICENSE. BESIDES HE'S BEEN CONVICTED BEFORE. THE BEST PREDICTOR OF FUTURE BEHAVIOR, IS PAST BEHAVIOR.

maurice king111 is innocent and will b provin so in the near future. did u know the informants in that case have come clean to certain people fact!!!! saying he commited perjury for another case to be droppd against him. how about if u have the urdge to give ur oppinion u look into the facts of the case. did u know metcalf was involvd. and he is a provin DIRTY COP. eric bosco the main detective in maurice kings case conveniently lost page 5 of his witness sating it was not maurice king she was dealing with. bosco pointed out maurice king and said thats the dirty cop. she told him thats not the man she was dealing with. did u know the very few people that tesstified against maurice king were also put in jail for breaking the law. Maurice King is the one police officer i would be proud to have serving my community. corruption does exist in mansfield and it starts at the top pf the chain of command. The bellville chief of police believs in maurice king and his story. the informants in this case have gotten out of theft charges rape charges and many more crimes that would put them away for years. why would they work for the police if they were free of any reprocusions of their actions. keep our kids and familys safe put the real DIRTY COPS behind bars. they could one day do the same to someone u know and love.

I have studied this case via internet and personal statements from someone involved. I would like to hear what Maurice King has to say himself, now that he has served his sentence. Anyone know how to get him to respond on this forum?

No king 3 is and always will be a little douche. He is a piece of ****. A Lil Terd is what he is and his wife is the same. I just hope his son doesn't grow up to be like him. He was found guilty cause he was guilty. Sad part is that was only half of the dirty stuff this dirty cop did. When your a cop you are held to a higher standard. He failed. Just like he has all his life. He is a Lil boy Terd. You got what u had coming buddy. Its your karma Maurice. Your karma. I myself......sit back and lmfao at u. Lil man. I just wanna pat u on top of your head.

Let the cop do his time just like anybody else would have to. I am sure he isn't an angel. There are good cops, but i guess this one wasn't.
