Deadbeat Dad Agrees to Halt Sex

Man Threatened With Prison Time

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A Louisville man agreed Tuesday to abstain from sex until his child support has been paid in full.

Louisville station WLKY-TV reported that Luther Crawford was given the choice of abstaining from sex or facing one to five years in the penitentiary.

Crawford, 50, owes $33,000 in child support, WLKY reported.

Crawford admitted that he's fathered 12 children with 11 women, but he said that he's now learned to use contraception.

"I thought about it and thought about it," Crawford said. "I want to get out of jail. I don't want to go the penitentiary. I'm afraid I might die up in there."

Prosecutor Alan Cobb came up with the agreement.

"If he's not going to be supporting the children he presently has, and he can't work in the future, he doesn't need to have any more children," Cobb said.

Crawford chose celibacy instead of a cell, but he's not happy about it.

"No, I don't think it's fair," Crawford said. "I feel I should be able to continue having intercourse with a woman by protection, but not cut off."

Crawford said that he hasn't been able to pay his child support because he's blind in one eye and has glaucoma in the other, suffers from heart problems and has damaged tendons in his wrist.

Crawford has questions about how the no-sex rule will be enforced.

"Who's gonna be watching?" Crawford asked. "They gonna be at my house or follow me, or is a probation officer gonna take tests?"

Cobb explained the procedure.

"If probation conducts a routine visit, and he is found to be in the act so to speak with another person, that would be a violation," Cobb said.

Getting another woman pregnant would be solid proof that Crawford had sex, and would result in his being sent to prison for a probation violation.

"I've been thinking about it and I ain't gonna chance it cause you never know," Crawford said. "I'm gonna stick to it ... I'm gonna try my best."

Even if Crawford gets married, Cobb said he may still try to enforce the no sex agreement, WLKY reported.

Crawford said that his longtime girlfriend wasn't aware of the agreement, but from now on, he will just have to tell her no.

A vasectomy, are you kidding? At 50 years of age and 12 children, he's just "learned" to use contraception. What a complete and utter moron. Why is it the stupid people are the ones who seem to be the most prolific?

Any "judge" who would agree to this is an out-and-out idiot.

We had a judge here in AZ who decreed that a female defendant not have any more children after a child neglect case. She was pregnant within the year.

However...

...he's fathered 12 children with 11 women

Luther apparantly has something going for him.

Okay, so he doesn't have enough physical ability to work, but he does to have sex?

Oh, haven't you heard? This guy has been rutting like a billy goat instead of engaging in self-abuse, for the kittens. It was noble of him to make the sacrifice.

Where is the Person of the Year who can invent a male iron Chastity Belt when you need him/her??!!

Instead of 'Hanes,' the label could say simply 'Sorry!'

1. Take one sharp boxcutter
2. Drop pants.
3. Cut off nuts!

Because society places no consequences on their actions. We are paying for his fun.

"Cut off", now there is a solution.

I don't care if a couple has 50 children, as long as they don't throw the burden of supporting them on me. As long as you can afford to take care of them, be my guest. As a matter of fact, I think that all decent, upstanding upper income folks should look on it as a duty to procreate with gusto, to offset all the losers in this country who breed like flies and burden everybody else with the care of their children.

"Betcha hes got hairy palms, too."

Hmmmmm...

Might that not also explain the tendonitis in the wrists as well?? (I'm being bad...I'll stop now).

because he's blind in one eye and has glaucoma in the other, suffers from heart problems and has damaged tendons in his wrist.

It sounds like his palms ought to be pretty hairy too. You would think that would be a major turnoff to most of these women.

Amazingly, one organ seems to be functioning flawlessly. Call the Smithsonian. This guy is going to have sex even after he dies.

Oh, I bet he's proud of it. There are those of a certain mentality who think the more children you father, the more of a "man" you are.
