Steven Clark: Cerebral palsy allegedly doesn't prevent him from sexually abusing (and impregnating) a child
Steven Clark is allegedly able-bodied enough to do some very bad things.
Activists rightly tout the ability of the disabled to do just about anything. But don't expect them to use Steven Clark as a poster boy.
Clark, 33, who uses a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy, has been hit with several charges related to sexual abuse on a child -- the daughter of his caretaker. He reportedly engaged in non-consensual sex with the girl, now fifteen, over a series of years before impregnating her.
If these actions prove true, they suggest that Clark's disabilities are more moral than physical. Read a release by the Denver District Attorney's Office below:
MAN CHARGED IN SEXUAL ASSAULT ON CHILD
