Georgia, U.S -- A 37-year-old woman was arrested after her wedding for allegedly having a sexual relationship with the 15-year-old boy who became her husband, authorities in the US state of Georgia said on Tuesday.
Lisa Lynnette Clark of Gainesville, Georgia, was arrested last week, one day after the wedding, and is under investigation for child molestation, said Jeff Strickland, a spokesperson for the local mayor.
The wedding itself was apparently legal. While minors under 16 years of age need parental permission to marry, this regulation does not apply if the would-be-bride is pregnant, as is Clark's case.
The boy's grandmother said she denounced the woman to authorities after finding love letters sent to her grandson, who is being held in juvenile detention for theft, local media reported.
