Starks Man Accused of Crime Against Nature
A 64-year-old Starks man is accused of inappropriately touching a 15-year-old girl, Calcasieu Parish authorities said.
Ted R. Clark was arrested and charged with aggravated crime against nature. Judge Michael Canaday set bond at $200,000.
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office first received a complaint against Clark on June 1, said Kim Myers, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman. The girl said the incident happened in March.
The girl told authorities that Clark told her he needed her help to find a dog kennel behind her home, Myers said. He then asked if they could go inside, where he inappropriately touched her.
Clark was arrested on July 25.
Detective Dennis Pippin is the lead investigator.
