South Kingstown man indicted for sexual assault

 

 

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Attorney General Peter F. Neronha announced that the Statewide Grand Jury returned a four-count indictment charging a South Kingstown man with sexually assaulting a 46-year-old female victim in 2018.

 

On July 26, 2021, the Statewide Grand Jury returned a sealed indictment charging Clark Donatelli (age 55) with four counts of second-degree sexual assault.

 

After the sealed indictment was returned, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Donatelli, who was arraigned on November 10, 2021, at a hearing in Providence County Superior Court.

 

Donatelli was granted bail, which was set at $10,000 personal recognizance. The Court also issued a No Contact Order between Donatelli and his alleged victim as a condition of his bail. Donatelli is scheduled for a pretrial conference on December 15, 2021, in Providence County Superior Court.

 

As alleged in the indictment, the charges against Donatelli occurred in the city of Providence sometime on November 1, 2018. The Providence Police Department conducted the investigation.

 

Assistant Attorney General Timothy G. Healy and Special Assistant Jonathan E. Burke of the Office of the Attorney General and Detective Koren Garcia of the Providence Police Department are leading the investigation and prosecution of the case.

 

An indictment, information, or complaint is merely an allegation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
