— 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.

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, Sammons said. Clark was discharged from the hospital and returned to jail, where she is being held without bond.

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.

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.
