NEW ORLEANS, LA (KCBD) - A former Lubbock pastor wants a federal appeals court to throw out his conviction of importing an alien for immoral purposes.
James Cornell Clark was sentenced to 10 years in 2007 for importing a Kenyan woman to act as his sex slave after promising her a free education. During a hearing Monday before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, Clark's lawyer argued his conviction must be overturned because the term "immoral purposes" is unconstitutionally vague.
A three judge panel did not immediately rule.
