Wisconsin is sending guys to prison for failure to support. when they are unable to pay their child support due to a job loss of their own.
Wisconsin is sending guys to PRISON for failure to support when they are unable to find employment and pay their child support order; in this struggling economy.
On the other hand; Dennis Rodman (owing $860,376 dollars in back support) and Congressman's owing hundreds of thousands of dollars only get threatened to serve a few days jail time.
In Wisconsin (Marinette County) is sending guys to PRISON for owing as little as $3,000 dollars. While their child support is adding up with interest added on each month; they will not only be over their head in back support but who will hire them now with the big F (felony) on their record!??
Once again I say: What's wrong with our country (Marinette County, WI.) in particular; when you’re punished to PRISON for not being able to find employment in this struggling economy!
This gentleman lost his job, unemployment ran out, home he was renting, vehicle and then lost his daughter when he became incarcerated (He was a single parent for 10 years; with no financial support from the mother)! Only owing a little over $3,000 in back support he not only was sentenced to 18 months and 2 year’s probation, he also served over 100 days in county jail before being sentenced. NO ONE should be punished to this degree for not being able to find employment! If you are one of the lucky ones to still have a job; would you please search your heart and send a donation to help him get back on his feet, once released! If this has happened to you, a family member or friend; we'd like to hear from you.
