Pedro Quezada, a New Jersey bodega owner who struck it rich by winning Powerball, celebrates his lottery victory during a press conference on Tuesday. But the Passaic County Sheriff says Quezada can’t claim his bounty, $338 million, until he pays off $29,000 in outstanding child support.

How does the Sheriff have the authority to stop payment? What the h*ll is up with that?

No kidding. Even if you don’t take it out of his winnings before you cut the check .... it’d be better to let him collect, then just garnish the $29K. Should take his baby-mama’s lawyer about 20-minutes to draft a garnishment.

Makes no sense to withhold money he could use to pay ... waiting for him to pay. The mother would be better off if they just paid him.

He is probably enforcing a court order already in place regarding asset seizure due to unpaid child support.

“So it was a deadbeat dad won the lotto. Lovely. So it was a deadbeat dad won the lotto. Lovely. Sends all the wrong messages.”

The term deadbeat dad has pretty much lost it’s meaning anymore. Could be nothing more than a man who was accessed child support and got laid off...

He's made it pretty clear he has a job at a bodega. Up until he won, of course.

Based on what I know about this guy a judge ought to put about 30% of his lotto winnings in a trust fund for his kid.

I don't see where a sherrif has anything to do with lottery payouts, unless someone slaps a lien at the deadbeat.

I wonder how much of that 29K actually goes to his family and how much will be sucked up by administrative costs?

Spoken like a person that has no clue what mandated child support has done to the inner-city family unit.

Perhaps you should look at that aspect.

This sounds like a for real Nigerian angle.

He can't get his money right now but if you front him $29,000

There is no hold. It’s just a silly story... This guy could barrow 50K in about 20 seconds.

In fact that’s what I would recommend. That way he’s be up to date on his child support when he came into money. You know his child support is going to go up now, and it’s better for him if he isn’t in the rears when he goes to court.

“He has a job and he owes child support.”

Is that it? How much does he make? What are his monthly payments. An awful lot of jobs out there will not even provide food and housing for one person.

Sounds like you know nothing...

The immigrant POS deadbeat dad is a party store owner who owes $29,000 in back child support? I say give the money to the ex wife, let her keep her share then force him to try and get the rest of it back.........

As a side note, it wouldn't suprise me in the least if one of his customers bought the ticket then brought it back to him to see if it was a winner and as occasionally happens, he says no, pretends to throw it away and the ticket buyer walks away thinking they were a loser.......and he cashes in.

While I'm sure that has happened in this case he didn't have lotto in his store and bought the ticket at another store.

Mandated child support is least among the culprits of the dissolution of the family unit, whether in the inner-city, suburbia, or rural America.

So the creep owes child support. It will get paid. The big question in my mind is whether he’ll share his winnings with that child or children....does he have a heart?

I had an employed Christian ex who NEVER paid his child support, and in fact, stole money from his children’s accounts — money they had made themselves, as child models. Of course the children felt awful about this.

At least the lottery winner has a chance to make restitution both financially and emotionally to all of his children. Let’s hope that he does.

Please...

I worked with this group for twenty years. I have seen first hand what this mandate has done.

Would you elaborate? I see lots of villains. Women being encouraged (paid) to have children out of wedlock, having more children than they can possibly care for to get the money, children having children. Incentive for fathers not to be there. On and on and on. How do you separate out mandated child support for first place honors?
