King loses conviction appeal
Marlon King, now with Coventry City, has lost his appeal against the conviction he received for sexually assaulting a woman which resulted in 18-month prison sentence.
The Court of Appeal rejected his appeal, with three judges saying the case against King was 'strong'.
They said: 'We have no doubt that this conviction is safe.'
King left prison in July and was offered a contract by City two months later after his former manager at Watford, Aidy Boothroyd, took over at the Ricoh Arena.
