(Scroll down for video) An Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) was arrested, charged and convicted of sexual assault after sexually assaulting numerous women inside his ambulance, prosecutors in New Zealand said.
Former Hawke Bay Ambulance worker, 49-year-old Christopher King, has been sentenced to 14 and a half years in prison after being convicted of thirteen charges, including sexual assault and sexual violation.
Judge Geoff Rea said that this was one of the worst cases ever in his court. According to the police investigation, King assaulted 6 victims, who were between 12 and 56 years old.
King was convicted at the Napier District Court, of sexual violation and making intimate visual recordings of a 15-year-old girl while being transported in his ambulance.
“King was a sexual predator who took advantage of the most vulnerable, and exploited his position of trust during emergency situations,” prosecutors told the court.
One teen told the court that after the abuse she contemplated suicide. “I suffer from depression and I do not trust anyone,” she said.
