Jake King gets 12 month good behaviour bond after threats

Former Richmond player Jake King has escaped a jail sentence with the help of his fellow Tigers.

King was charged last July after he threatened to break the legs of a businessman if he did not pay him $150,000. He pleaded guilty to possessing testosterone supplements, but after references from former Richmond colleagues, he was sentenced to a 12-month good behaviour bond, without conviction, in Melbourne’s Magistrates Court yesterday. He must also pay $5000 to charity.

A list of Richmond greats ­including Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin, former player Matthew Richardson, Richmond chief executive Brendon Gale and former Tigers president Gary March provided character references for King.

It is understood a former police sergeant with 25 years’ experience also supplied a reference for King, who played 107 games until he was forced to retire due to injury in 2014. Vickery retired last year.

Glad he got off, sounds like the guy he tghreatened was the real crook. Though if he had broken someone's legs I'd have a different opinion.
