Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Lincoln County man was sentenced to a lengthy prison term in connection with a child sexual assault case reported in September of 2018.

On January 9, 2019 Douglas Glenn Queen Jr., 29, of Koliha Lane, Maiden appeared in Lincoln County Superior Court on charges first degree statutory sex offense, indecent liberties with a child and felony child abuse in a case prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Lydia Hoza.

Queen entered a plea of guilty to all charges and Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Forrest D. Bridges sentenced Queen to a minimum of 276 months to a maximum of 392 months in the North Carolina Prison System. When he is released from prison Queen will receive 30 months of supervised probation. He will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and be subject to satellite monitoring.
