Accused Child Molester Commits Suicide


ATLANTA -- A Gwinnett County man accused of molesting several boys shot and killed himself at home Monday rather than return to court and sit through closing arguments.

Fifty-year-old Jeffrey Ford Clarke was facing a recommended 25-year prison sentence if convicted and could have received up to 400 years had he been punished for each alleged offense.

Clarke was charged with two counts of aggravated child molestation, three counts of child molestation and 14 counts of sexual exploitation of children against seven alleged victims, all sons of family friends. They testified during the trial they were 8 to 10 when Clarke wooed them with video games and sleepovers before molesting them at his home.

Clarke's attorney, Eugene Novy, said he shot himself twice around 9 a.m., when he was due in court.

The press and people in general have no idea how damaging his acts are and how they impact the lives of those boys. They want to sweep that information under the rug of polite society.

Whilst I'm zen about his death, I guess the courts can still posthumously convict - shame he didn't hang on until the verdicts came in.
