Ga. woman who married teen gives birth to couple's baby

A woman accused of molesting a 15-year-old boy she later married gave birth to the couple's child over the weekend, the woman's lawyer said Monday.

A pregnant Lisa Clark, 37, appeared on The Tyra Banks Show Dec. 15. She gave birth to a boy.

Lisa Clark, 37, gave birth to a 7-pound, 9-ounce boy Saturday, Daniel Sammons said.

The baby could be put in state custody unless Clark can arrange the necessary paperwork for a friend to take temporary custody before Clark is discharged from the hospital and returned to jail, where she will be held without bond, Sammons said.

"Right now, she's struggling with the trauma of having the child torn loose from her arms and possibly placed in foster care while she goes back to jail," Sammons said in a telephone interview.

Clark's teenage husband turned up in Ohio earlier this month after disappearing from a juvenile home in Georgia. It was not immediately clear where he was Monday. (Related story)

District Attorney Lee Darragh did not return calls seeking comment.

A spokeswoman for Georgia's Division of Family and Children Services said the agency was not currently involved in the case.

Clark and the boy she is accused of molesting married in November. Georgia law allows children regardless of age to wed if there is a pregnancy.

Clark had been free on bond, but was arrested again last week after authorities said she had been communicating with her husband in violation of a condition of her release. Arraignment was set for Feb. 24.


Runaway teen groom found in Ohio
DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. — A 15-year-old boy whose 37-year-old wife is due to give birth to the couple's baby this month was found in Ohio after disappearing from a juvenile home, authorities said.

A pregnant Lisa Clark, 37, appears on The Tyra Banks Show, in December. Clark married her teen groom in November.

His wife, Lisa Clark, was charged with hindering the apprehension of a child in connection with his disappearance, said Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller. She is expecting the teenager's baby in about a week.

Richard Mecum of the U.S. Marshals Service said authorities tracked the boy to a residence in Cleveland through a package Clark mailed. The package contained a cellphone and a hefty sum of money.

Posing as a delivery man, a deputy dropped the package off at the home and was able to determine that the boy was living there, authorities said. Mecum said the residents were unaware that he was a runaway.

Clark, who was lodged in the Douglas County Jail, is expecting the teenager's baby in a week to 10 days. Her attorney, Dan Sammons, said last week she had no role in his vanishing and had no idea where he was.

The two were wed in November. Clark, who was previously charged with child molestation, was released on bond on the condition that she not have contact with the teen.

Clark has said she still hopes to make a life with the child groom and their baby.
