GAINESVILLE, Ga. – A 37-year-old woman who married a 15-year-old boy was indicted by a Hall County grand jury Tuesday on charges of child molestation, statutory rape and enticing a child for indecent purposes.
Lisa Lynette Clark, who is pregnant with the teenager's child, was arrested earlier this month after their Nov. 8 wedding in neighboring Dawson County and released on bond Nov. 18 on child molestation charges.
She was scheduled to appear Wednesday before a magistrate for a preliminary hearing, but District Attorney Lee Darragh said that the indictment meant that hearing would not be held.
"The next step in the criminal process will be a formal arraignment in Superior Court," the prosecutor said. He did not indicate when that arraignment would be.
Last week, a Juvenile Court judge ruled that the teenager, who skipped school to get married, violated his probation on a previous burglary charge. The boy, identified only by his initials "A.S.G.", was ordered to remain on probation while living under the care of another relative but not his grandmother Judy Hayles, his former guardian.
