New criminal charge for embattled charity president

Posted:

More legal trouble is plaguing a woman who was the subject of a Fox Undercover investigation. The president of the Cape Cod charity Touched by Angels is now facing a new criminal charge.

Gina Clark is already under serious scrutiny by state investigators who are looking into allegations Clark pocketed money raised through Touched by Angels. Now Clark is being charged with intimidating a witness.

The development came out of Barnstable District Court Thursday afternoon. Joanne Vierra is the witness Clark is accused of intimidating.

Vierra was among those protesting outside Clark’s Marstons Mills office over the summer. After that protest Clark allegedly called Vierra's employer repeatedly accusing her of wrongdoing.

But Barnstable police say Clark made it all up.

The police department presented its findings at a court hearing Thursday which resulted in the criminal complaint against Clark.

Outside court, Clark and her attorney declined to comment on the new charge.

This is the latest in a string of legal problems for Clark. In October, she was found guilty of assaulting her former vice president. And as Fox Undercover first reported last month, Clark is now the subject of a grand jury investigation by the attorney general's office.

Families who turned to Touched by Angels for help are starting to tell their stories to the grand jury, a process that could result in much more serious criminal charges against Clark.
