King was ordered to pay $1 million in total to Paul A. Bonacci.

Lawrence E. "Larry" King Jr. ran the Franklin Community Credit Union of Omaha, Nebraska and was a prominent fundraiser for the GOP before pleading guilty to embezzlement. He was alleged to have been involved in, or the leader of, a child-sex group in Nebraska in the 1980s.

A television documentary on the "Franklin Coverup Scandal", called Conspiracy of Silence, was produced in 1994 but never aired, apparently due to concerns about liability for defamation.

In February 1999, a U.S. District Court awarded a plaintiff, Paul A. Bonacci, $800,000 in damages against King for various tort claims, including physical, mental, and sexual abuse. The award followed a default judgment resulting from King's failure to respond to Bonacci's lawsuit. The Judge did not rule that King committed the abuse.[1].
