Dover Man Gets 125 Years For Raping 12-Year-Old Girl

Tyrone Clark, 64, has been sentenced to a total of 125 years for the rape and abuse of a 12-year-old child in his care.

In 2020, Clark was found guilty of ten felonies after molesting a twelve-year-old girl in his care. Clark watched pornography on his phone, making no effort to hide it from the victim or her six-year-old sister, and later engaged in multiple acts of sexual assault against the victim in the middle of the night. The victim was able to contact her mother by text from Clark’s phone and then fled from the house on foot.

Clark was found guilty of ten total felonies:

Sexual Abuse of a Child by a Person in a Position of Trust, Authority, or Supervision First Degree (two counts)
Attempted Sexual Abuse of a Child by a Person in a Position of Trust, Authority, or Supervision First Degree (one count)

Rape Second Degree (one count)
Attempted Rape Second Degree (one count)
Dangerous Crimes Against a Child (two counts)
