A private in the United States Army has been accused of deserting after entering North Korea across the demilitarized zone.

The soldier’s mother disputes the accusations leveled against him, asserting that her son is a “good boy” and that he is “not like that.”

Who is Travis King’s mom, Claudine Gates?

Most people know Claudine Gates as Travis King’s mother.

Although not much is known about Gates’ personal life, she is frequently seen spending time with her husband, King’s stepfather Dan Jovanovic, when she is not speaking out for her kid.

King was reared in Racine, Wisconsin, and is one of six children.

What happened to Travis King?

King was stationed to Camp Bonifas in South Korea in 2022 as a cavalry scout.

He was apparently compelled to pay a $4,000 fine for damaging public property while he was abroad.

King was sentenced to 48 days in a Cheonan prison after he finally failed to pay the fee, as reported by NBC News.

After being freed from a South Korean prison, he entered North Korea without permission in July 2023 and was apprehended by North Korean military.

The New York Times stated that King “willfully and without authorization crossed the Military Demarcation Line into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.”

After being under American captivity for two months, the soldier was brought to a medical facility in San Antonio, Texas, for assessments.

Subsequently, Reuters reports, he was accused of other offenses, including violence, desertion, and possession of child pornography.

His situation is unknown, however it is said that he is being held in El Paso, Texas, in pre-trial detention.

What has Claudine said about Travis’ detainment?

King’s mother has spoken out multiple times since he made news.

She first expressed gratitude to the Army for bringing her son home, but she disagrees with the accusations made against him.
