Man Charged After Internet Chats

by ivy on August 20th, 2001 Charges have been filed against a man who admitted to police that he tried to find someone in an Internet chat room to kidnap, rape and torture his wife, authorities said.

Joe Mack Clemens, 55, of Longview, was indicted Thursday on charges of criminal solicitation, according to the office of District Attorney Bill Jennings.

He was also indicted on child pornography charges after telling investigators he had child pornography on his computer.

Clemens was arrested on June 12 after a representative of Yahoo! reported that someone using Clemens' computer had been in a chat room looking for someone to come to Longview and harm his wife.

Records show he signed a statement admitting he initiated the contact in an e-mail indicating he wanted his wife "kidnapped, gang-raped, tortured and humiliated.''

He told officers he had communicated with two Internet contacts about a possible attack.

A warrant did not specify a motive other than Clemens blaming "long-term marital problems.''

Clemens told arresting officers that he had not meant, "deep in my heart,'' to harm his wife of 15 years.

Clemens remained in jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
