Gast found guilty on domestic violence

GEORGETOWN – Former Aberdeen Police Chief Clark Gast was found guilty on one count of domestic violence this week.

Gast faced two counts of domestic violence for accusations he attacked both his wife Laura, and her 10-year old daughter and was convicted on the count of domestic violence against his wife.

While on the stand, Gast denied all allegations. According to WCPO, Gast said “I never struck my wife,” and “I’ve never struck a female.”

However, Laura’s daughter told the court a different story while she was on the stand. She told of a Clark Gast who “punched” her mother “in the head,” while she was witness to the violence.

According to Laura’s daughter, she witnessed her mother being choked by Gast to the point of her feet being off the ground.

The daughter also described another attack, according to WCPO reports, by Clark Gast who pulled her hair while she asked the former police chief to stop choking the dog on the night of August 12, 2013. Both incidents happened were alleged to happen that night. The following day Clark returned home to find his wife hanging from a ceiling fan.

Gast was indicted on the domestic violence charge in August of 2015 and went to trial this past week.

The jury returned a guilty verdict on the count of Gast committing domestic violence against his wife. With the conviction, Gast faces up to 180 days in jail.
