GOTCHA! Grant Norman King sentenced to 18 months Jail in Waitakere District Court this afternoon for (again) running a business whilst a bankrupt.

 

It’s taken 4 years, 329 website posts, 14 convictions (secured between 2011 and 2015 against King), 3 Statutory investigations by two Ministries of the Crown, 1 landmark Legal case precedent win, 8 media articles, the support and assistance of key King fraud victims and dozens of GNKASS (Grant Norman King Accountability Support Society) supporters, most of whom I have never met, who have been our eyes and ears in the field – but we did it!

Grant Norman King spends his first night tonight in Mt Eden Prison, beginning an 18 month term of imprisonment.

The end, when it came, was a pathetic display by Grant King, as he simpered, pleaded, and tried to manipulate the Judge and the legal system one last time.

In the dock, King pleaded “mitigating circumstances” – the Judge said “None that warrant consideration in this matter”;

King then tried “humanitarian grounds on basis of looking after dependent (19 and 27 years of age is dependent?) young women” – the Judge said “You should have thought of that before you committed your crimes”;

King then had a go at the “It’s coming up to Christmas, can we take the time of year into consideration?” -the Judge said “We don’t decide different sentences on the basis of the time of year, but on the basis of the law and the appropriate legal precedents / authorities – every authority I have canvassed says you should receive a jail sentence”.

Then it was “I don’t want to be 62 years-old and on the scrapheap, I was just being entrepreneurial and didn’t mean any harm to anyone – I just made a mistake” – the Judge said “You are a brazen and recidivist offender who conducts a charade of outward compliance whilst misleading the authorities, and you have a long history of offending, characterised by a strong sense of entitlement towards other peoples money”.

Kings last attempt at some sort of freedom then lay with his Amicus to assist the Court, who suggested that a sentence of Home Detention would meet the “deterrence” requirement for King to change his ways, whilst protecting the public – the Judge said “Home Detention is an inadequate sentencing for this level of offending”.

Immediately on being sentenced on 6 jail term convictions (all to be served concurrently, the longest sentence being 18 months imprisonment), King applied for bail pending an Appeal of his sentencing – after a brief Adjournment, the Judge said “Application denied”.

The on-duty Policeman in the dock then reached for his handcuffs, while Grant “Levi Ponyboy” King / Grant Good / George Good / Grant Norman / Grant Melrose (and all his other online aliases) and his daughter Sequoia King sobbed up a storm – it was like watching two people who had been living in the twilight zone their entire lives finally wake up to reality – and it wasn’t at all pretty to watch.

Grant Norman King, who has amassed over 40 offences in his criminal logbook of life, who even now has over $20,000 of fines owing to the Crown, who sold the Chinese investors in Tern Anchor and Trident Cycles down the river for over $300,000, who hid over $58,000 of income from the Official Assignee this time around, and who has amassed nearly $4 million dollars of fraud against 71 victims of fraud in the past 33 years, was led away, crying and sniffling like the proverbial baby.

I can’t imagine Mr King is going have a very pleasant time in Jail as a historically convicted sex offender.

Double-bunking at Mt Eden Prison should be fun too, I would imagine.

Gotcha, you prick.

The above is just a “taster” of the full story, which I have tonight had confirmed is being scheduled for publication within the next 1-2 weeks with an exclusive media organisation.

I have screeds of documents to publish as well, and I will release these documents on the website on the day the exclusive media news article is published.

Trident Cycles starts to rack up the fraud victims: “Leviponyboy” Trade Me account is Grant Norman King – and Trade Me knows it.

 Grant Norman King continues to extend his middle finger to the NZ Legal System:

The latest fraud victim (# 72) writes:

“My husband is the member on TradeMe, and you know the story, this guy was trading again on TM. using the name Levi but I remembered Helensville as his area.

When the bike didn’t turn up, and he suddenly disappeared from TM, we contacted TM and made a report and then heard nothing back.

We had basically accepted that we’d lost the money, and being a birthday present, our daughter was also very disappointed.

Then yesterday we rang, e-mailed ([email protected]) and phoned TM again, and they got back to us to say that they had contacted him via e-mail, (as he didn’t return their calls either) and his story was he’d just sent it, and TM was giving him until this morning to do so.

They refuse to give me any details about this “trader”, or why he is no longer on TM.

The name the “trader” gave me to bank the money was Levi Norman. I was checking my bank account yesterday and I noticed that the name actually came up as G K Norman, so I started to search, white pages, nothing, and then variations on G – greg, garry, and then grant, and guess what, I saw your site, and read it, then saw the trident cycles connection, and looked on FB, 103 Mill rd Helensville and his website, and there is the bike we purchased.

I tried the phone number for Trident, it goes to answer phone every time.

But I knew it was the same guy. So it was actually his bank account that gave him away. 

I keep looking at your site, and then read the story about TM and tried the mobile number, and he actually answered.

He was a bit flustered as to how I had connected the dots, I launched into I’ve bought a bike from you on Trade Me…which he at first denied.

However he was then able to tell me that he had just yesterday sent it to Toll to be freighted and knew the receivers details and address, and gave me some story about a guy named Levi who lived down the road he sells bikes too, who then resells them on TM.

However he could not give me his phone number when I asked for it… 

I just told him I didn’t believe him, and that he was the same person, which he denied.

When I asked him about being bankrupt, he confirmed it, and he said he just worked for Trident cycles. 

I insisted on a tracking number, which TM was unable to even get out of him.

He gave me one, it was incorrect when I searched for it.

I then rang Toll, and they did actually confirm that they had picked up from 103 Mill rd a package for my daughter. So maybe miracles do happen, I’ll let you know when it is received.

So our concerns are the same as yours in that TM is letting this guy trade and as you said throwing people under the bus! this is not on.

This experience has been awful, the whole site is built on trust, and it is a big ask to hand over money in good faith based on a picture.

If TM weren’t so paranoid about getting their money and insisted on more transparency, contact phone numbers, address verified, bank accounts, maybe less people would be scammed.

If they themselves had more trust that the sellers would pay them!

I think he has only decided to send it in the end because TM investigations was onto him and he must really need TM to sell these.

However it does not change the fact that as you pointed out he should not be trading at all. 

How do you hold TM accountable?

I did e-mail them the link for your TM story, so hopefully they digest that.

They seem unwilling to accept any liability, and quite prepared to protect this guy?”

Long story short: Grant King is still illegally trading, despite a host of legal sanctions against him not to (including a High Court Judgment).

And Trade Me’s role? An appalling case study regarding the on-going enablement of a criminal.

NZ Legal system: over to you.

And very, very soon, we will tell you how, who, what, and why  – exclusive media story pending.

Grant King Public Examination (Auckland High Court) provisional update.

What a day.

It turns out the Crown Prosecutor only needed one of the scheduled two days to conduct the Public Examination into Grant King.

The Judge’s decision on Grant Kings bankruptcy status is reserved, and I have undertaken obligations with key stakeholders in this case not to post anything on the content of what transpired today, or what was revealed  by the respective parties to the Public Examination process, until the Judge has made a decision.

There is also new information that has come to light regarding Grant King during the Public Examination procedure, that I have again agreed not to post until a later date.

What I can tell you is that I wrote 15 x A 4 pages of notes, and that what I heard today will blow your mind.

More later.
