The Prince George’s County Police Department arrested an Upper Marlboro man in connection with the repeated sexual assault of a then 13 year-old girl in Fort Washington. The suspect is identified as 48 year-old Garnold Maurice King of the 9600 block of Reiker Drive.
King was a social studies teacher at Isaac Gourdine Middle School in Fort Washington. The victim was one of his students. The then 13 year-old alleges that between September 2011 and June 2012, King sexually assaulted her, both on and off school grounds. The victim told her mother, who then contacted police.
Police officers arrested King on December 6, 2012. He faces charges of second, third, and fourth degree sex offense, second degree assault and two counts of sex abuse of a minor. King has since been released on a $125,000 bond.
