Winner man imprisoned for failure to register as sex offender

WINNER -- A Winner man was sentenced Tuesday to 15 months in prison for failure to register as a sex offender and ordered to pay more than $50,000 in unpaid child support.

Burton W. King, 52, pleaded guilty July 3 in federal court to failure to register as a sex offender and failure to pay legal child support.

King has failed to pay child support to his minor children, who reside in South Dakota, since April 1, 1997. King was convicted in 1995 of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor and as a result is required to register as a sex offender, but has failed to do since August 2006. King was immediately turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service.
