Frank Hatley was jailed last year for falling behind on child support payments.
Court documents showed he was jailed for six months in 2006 for falling behind on payments during a period of unemployment, but afterward he resumed making payments, continuing to do so even after he lost another job and became homeless in 2008. But last year he became unable to make the payments and was jailed.

Maybe I am looking at this the wrong way, but how does jailing a man who is unable to pay child support help anyone?

You have to pay a price, Hans. The law is you must pay your child support. He did not. He broke the law.

What should they do, throw a parade for him, and name a street after him?

How is he supposed to pay child report while jailed?

He didn't pay it out of jail!

He could be on work release in jail, where he could get a weekly paycheck. He could work in the jail, and make some money.

Did you miss the part that said the child is not his? I don't care how much money the state gave the mother, in such a case there is no chance in hell I would pay up.

Furthermore, I believe that Mr. Hatley should rightfully recover all monies that he paid out in child support previous to that. Go after the real father for all the money.

He failed to pay child support for a child he did not father and you believe he was rightly jailed?

I'm with Hans, jailing the man does nothing to help the family. I wonder if owed for Child support for the time he was in jail and unable to earn money.

He doesn't owe a cent, since he isn't the father.

Everybody who thinks jailing him would be a bad idea because it does nothing to help the family, should read the article again! Perhaps even a 3rd time if it hasn't yet sunk in that he is NOT the father.

Yes, he does. Don't forget that he is the best. Now do you realize why I said I feared for the future of our planet if such was true?

It seems he should have had at least a paternaty test done before he signed the agreement. Once you have signed this you are responsible for the agreement.

You guys have got to realize that Slow never reads any posted article before he begins opining.

So if his opinion seems absurd, it's only because he's completely ignorant of any actual facts :)

This is what he does in defeat. He stops posting in that thread, in hopes, that everyone will forget that he lost. Just like the charitable contributor thread, and the health care thread. I'm surprised he didn't do the 'na na na na boo boo' before he ran away.

Or...I have a life outside of Soonet, and have been away...

wow...what a concept ;)

I proved the RCC is the largest charity in the world. I proved your healthcare system is broke, why else does a leading Canadian politician use ours?

It's been a long summer, guys. I understand your frustration. :)

Slow, how do you justify your posts? You claim to have less computer time than Teapot, but have over 20,000 more posts than he does, 4 more user accounts than he does? Is it time to tuck your tail and admit defeat?

You haven't proved the largest charity, STILL. No one denies it (Canadian healthcare) being broke, and a leading politician went to see a specialist that she felt was the best, who happened to be in the states. I still don't see how your ocd works, maybe one day we will.

Look at the stats...T Pot averages more posts than me per day.

Where is your proof I have 20,000 posts? Source? Link? You sure seem to be on here everytime I am...hmmmmm... ;)

Now, off I go, back into the sun...what, you can't? You have to work??? You don't get three months off in the summer??

Awwww, too bad. Oh well, buh bye now :)

I only have one account Slow. This is really getting kind of petty.

Accept defeat, who cares if you post more, why are you taking such offence?
