Offers of help pour in for man accused of leaving children home alone to work

By Ed Crump,

RALEIGH — A Raleigh man accused of leaving his five children under age 8 at home while he went to work is now out of jail.

Victor King says he was bailed out of jail by a complete stranger who saw his story on ABC11 and he is now back at work.

That person is just one of dozens across the nation who have reached out to ABC11 and the family to lend a helping hand.

King told a judge in court on Wednesday that his wife was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer and that he had to work to support her and his children.

But a woman who called 911 to report that the children were home alone for a second day said she had offered King help finding a babysitter and he refused it.
