Both Gina Clark and her now-defunct charity, Touched by Angels, were found guilty on 52 counts each in Barnstable Superior Court today. The jury has been deliberating since Tuesday. Gina's bail was revoked and she is going directly to jail. She must appear in court Monday for the victims to read victim witness statements, after which the judge will impose sentencing.
When Judge Rufo said that her bail was revoked and she would be going to Barnstable County Correctional Facility immediately, Gina's lawyer Joan Fund protested that Gina had "two babies" at home and was on medication. The judge did not change his decision.
Gina's husband Chris Clark, who has not been seen much during the trial, was present at the reading of the verdict. Several members of Gina's family were sobbing during the reading of verdicts on all the counts and extra guards were on duty for the scene created by high emotions both inside and outside the courtroom.
After each count of "guilty" was announced, Gina looked at the jury and shook her head.
Any victim witness of Gina and Touched by Angels is allowed to read a statement to Judge Rufo on Monday, and then he will impose a sentence.
