Former counselor looking for new trial in child abuse case

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- A former Iowa City elementary guidance counselor found guilty of abusing a child has requested a new trial.

Donald Clark's attorney filed a motion Monday asking the court to overrule the guilty verdict and have a new trial under the grounds that the verdict was granted in error.

The 41-year-old Clark was convicted of second-degree sexual abuse of a child on Feb 10.

He could face up to 25 years in prison.
