Foster parents get jail time for perjury

Print Article

COEUR d'ALENE - A pair of Post Falls foster parents were sentenced in Kootenai County District Court this week for perjuring themselves while on trial for child abuse charges that were dismissed in court last summer.

Jeremy and Amber Clark were each sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail plus two years of probation and 300 hours of community service.

The Clarks both agreed in court last August, as part of an Alford plea, to be sentenced for perjury for statements they made at prior hearings. The other charges they faced - two counts of felony injury to a child and conspiracy to conceal evidence of abuse - were dismissed at that time.

The Clarks were originally accused of child abuse of a foster child, a boy, alleged to have taken place from 2007 to early 2008.

They also were accused of beating 2-year-old foster child Karina J. Moore into a coma and failing to get her medical care. She died in January 2009, and a medical examiner ruled the case a homicide, citing "blunt-force head injuries."
