A number of local parents have now made contact with this website asking for further details of Grant Kings 2004 conviction for sex offences against a minor.
This website is unable to release the court documents without identifying the victim, however if parents wish to make contact with the victims family, please leave your details in the comments section of this post and we can pass your details onto the family for them to contact you.
As all post comments are moderated before being published, there is no risk of your details being published on this website, unless you give us consent to do so.
Please label your enquiry “Not for publication” in the email text box of your query.

The following message is from the family of Hayley Morgan:
“Hayley is now living with her family and working to start a new life and does not wish to have any involvement with Grant King. We don’t want Grant to be able to take away Hayley’s enjoyment of Horses and competing, so we are asking people in the horse circles to help keep an eye out for Hayley and let Grant know he is not welcome at horse events”.
Hopefully “Levi Ponyboy” will get the message, even all the way from Whangamata.
The GNKASS Network information line has been running hot over the past few days.
Most of the information has been (as usual) sent to the various statutory organisations that this website has shared information with, going right back to 2011.
This piece of information though is intriguing, as Whangamata is just 30km away from Waihi.
Does this image shock you?
Because there are others I could have uploaded that would have told a much more graphic story.
It seems that with Grant King out of prison and now on electronic bail, there are a number of young women who, having now had sufficient distance from the “Stockholm Syndrome” of being in Grant Kings clutches, are now coming forward and sharing their stories of their awful experiences with King.
The trouble is, when the young women and their families then reportedly attempt to make complaints against Grant King at the Helensville Police Station, the families are telling this website that the Helensville Police fob them off with the oft-used catch-phrase when it comes to Kings offending, “your complaint is a civil matter”.
In 2004, King was sent to prison for the sexual assault of a minor.
Long story short, King kidnapped a young minor woman he had been grooming, took her away to a motel, and spent the weekend sexually assaulting her.
Post-prison sentence, Grant King then groomed a then-14 year old Hayley Morgan (again via horses) whose family were neighbours of Grant King, and who for years refused to believe that King was sexually grooming their daughter.
King would (and still does) pretend to the authorities that he was / is acting in a “care-giver” role for Hayley – they ended up being in a relationship for many years, and word is that this relationship has recently resumed.
Fast forward to Helensville, circa 2011-16.
During this time, King has ingratiated himself into the “horsie” set, and has favoured Woodhill Sands as his preferred hunting ground for prey.
Woodhill Sands of course has been repeatedly warned about Grant King and his paedophile background, but they have continued to entertain him.
Now, there are (at least) 4 young women that we know have been groomed by Grant King in recent times, who have made themselves known to this website.
Their story is exactly the same.
King will give the girls money, time, and horses, whilst simultaneously be-friending the young girls families.
Over time, King works to either isolate the young girls in a setting away from their family and friends, or will attempt to drive a divisive wedge between the young girl and her family, whilst positioning himself as “someone who understands” what the young girl might be going through (which is most often just teenage angst).
At times, King has even been successful in having young girls “choose” to live with him in his “care-giving” role.
One young lady reportedly made this decision to move in with King, and when she tried to leave the house because she was frightened for her safety, King tied her to a bed and wouldn’t let her go.
Now older and wiser, these young women are now summoning the courage to speak up about what happened, and they want to be able to file formal criminal charges of sexual assault against Grant King – but the young women say that the Helensville Police refuse to take their criminal complaints.
So, what is actually going on?
Maybe a representative of the Helensville Police Station could give me a call and give their side of the story?
In the meantime, there is a bunch of young women who are keen to talk to local Police – about criminal, not civil matters.
