Judge Declares Child Groom a Delinquent

Thursday November 24, 2005 12:31 AM

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A judge on Wednesday declared a 15-year-old boy a delinquent for violating his probation by skipping school to marry a 37-year-old woman who is pregnant with the boy's child.

The boy, identified only by his initials ``A.S.G.,'' admitted in a juvenile court hearing to violating his probation on a previous burglary conviction by missing school and leaving home Nov. 8 to marry Lisa Lynnette Clark of Gainesville.

Clark has been charged with child molestation and cannot come within 100 feet of the boy.

Juvenile Court Judge Mary Carden ordered the boy not to have contact with Clark in person, by letters, phone calls, or through others. The judge also ordered him to enter into an alcohol and drug treatment program and to have counseling.

Carden said the boy would remain on probation and was prohibited from returning home with his grandmother, Judy Hayles, who was his guardian. He will be allowed to leave county custody as soon as another relative is selected as his guardian and can pick him up.

Hayles filed a police report Oct. 6 when she learned from a friend that Clark was pregnant. Georgia law allows children of any age to marry - without parental consent - if the bride-to-be is pregnant. The law dates back to the early 1960s and was written to prevent out-of-wedlock births.

I'm gonna go eat some grass... and then go read something else altogether. The phone book, maybe...

I know - I'll go over to Brian's place ; he always has good stuff to read.

Makes me want to barf. I especially like the part about him marrying his rapist. What-- what-- what? I am a sputtering mess contemplating this.

Why won't people attempt to control the dark corners of their souls? Why won't people attempt to control their children? Why won't people protect their children from rapists?

Agreed. That's why I had to go visit Brian's corner of the world. Trust me - I stopped at your house, too. Thanks for the hospitality.
