Wife Charged in Child Groom's Disappearance

A woman accused of child molestation after she married a 15-year-old boy was arrested again Wednesday.

Lisa Clark, 37, was charged with hindering the apprehension of a child one week after her teenage groom disappeared from a juvenile home where he had been sent after a probation violation, Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller said.

Clark, who was lodged in the Douglas County Jail, is expecting the teenager's baby in a week to 10 days.

Miller said he understood that the 15-year-old groom was in custody in Ohio.

The molestaton case against Clark and the probation against the teenager originated in Hall County, northeast of Atlanta and about 80 miles from Douglasville.

Last week, Clark's attorney, Dan Sammons, said she had no role in the disappearance of the boy and had no idea where he was.

The two were wed in November. After the molestation charge, she was released on bond on condition that she not have contact with the boy.

Clark has said she still hopes to make a life with the child groom, identified in court papers only as "ASG," and their baby.

Sammons says Clark is due to deliver the baby on Feb. 20, one week after she is scheduled to appear in a Hall County court on the child molestation charges.

Hall County District Attorney Lee Darragh could not be reached to comment Wednesday on Clark's latest arrest. The Hall County Sheriff's Office referred all questions to Darragh.
