Detectives working on Operation Telford spent the weekend questioning King after he went voluntarily with his solicitor to Colchester police station on Friday afternoon.
He was charged late on Saturday night after police successfully applied for an extension to their arrest warrant and he was remanded in custody until his appearance before the magistrates' court today.
Operation Telford was launched last autumn from its base in Stanway and involved a team of more than 20 officers, headed by Detective Superintindent Gareth Wilson.
