A registered sex offender from California was indicted by the Roane County grand jury last month.
Danny Lane King, 64, was booked into the Roane County Jail on Friday. He is charged with statutory rape by an authority figure, a Class C felony.
The alleged crime occurred in 2011. The grand jury indicted King on Oct. 15.
King, who has a Sacramento address, is scheduled to make a court appearance on Friday.
According to Megan’s Law, California’s version of a sex-offender registry, King was convicted in 2004 for lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14. He was still in custody at the Roane County Jail on a $5,000 bond Tuesday.
