King trial date set

The case of Lake Oswego swim coach Don King is scheduled to go to trial in March.

King, 66, was indicted in July in Linn County on charges that include four counts of felony sex abuse.

The allegations involve girl swimmers with King Swimming Club of Lake Oswego.

King is out on bail. His attorney, Richard Cohen, could not be reached for comment this week. But Cohen said in an earlier interview that King would fight the charges.

The Linn County charges stem from incidents during a swim meet in Albany in June. An off-duty Albany detective videotaped King committing the alleged sexual abuseafter being tipped off by the parent of a swimmer.

The trial is set to begin March 3 in Linn County Circuit Court in Albany.
