Description

The NBC Connecticut Troubleshooters expose a wedding videographer who left dozens of newlywed couples in multiple states without their once-in-a-lifetime memories and out tens of thousands of dollars. In our persistent investigation, Jesse Clark literally runs from our cameras and later tackles our news photographer. As a result of our initial story, Clark hands over long overdue wedding videos to a police detective but continues to try to get new business from more couples in CT, NY, RI, MA, CA, FL and TX under new company names. NBC Connecticut continued to pursue the story as he criss-crossed the United States. This story series resulted in MA Attorney General Martha Coakley suing Clark and his associates for damages of more than $75,000, freezing his assets and issuing a restraining order. The complaints against him are also under investigation in Connecticut. Legal experts say this could eventually become an interstate trade case against Clark.
