  • Michael Slager, cop who shot Walter Scott, begins sentencing hearing

    A grand jury indicted Slager in 2015, but a judge ultimately declared a mistrial in December 2016 after a jury remained deadlocked. The panel was made up of 11 white jurors and one black juror. While that case was ongoing, federal authorities pursued a parallel investigation against Slager on civil rights charges. Solicitor Scarlett Wilson had planned to bring a second case against Slager later this year, but those charges were dropped as part of his federal plea deal. ... During the sentencing hearing in downtown Charleston, the judge will determine if the shooting is voluntary manslaughter or murder. Prosecutors...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Abdifatah Ahmed struggled for years to make ends meet. After losing his $15-an-hour job fueling airliners in Minneapolis, the Somali-American father of nine survived on low-wage jobs and public assistance. He complained about working hard, but never having enough money. His circumstances worsened when he was ordered to pay more than $700 a month to support three of his children — including one less than a year old. Months later, he surfaced in Syria, where he went to fight for the Islamic State.

    Dashboard video shows a police officer making a routine traffic stop. Cellphone video shows the officer shooting the fleeing motorist in the back. What remains a mystery is what happened during the minutes in between that led the police officer to become a killer. The dash cam footage released by state police on Thursday showed North Charleston Officer Michael Thomas Slager pulling over black motorist Walter Scott for a broken brake light last weekend. Slager, who is white, has been charged with murder in Scott’s death. […] What’s missing is what happens from the time the two men run out...

    A Spanish judge has ordered a father to pay his 29-year-old daughter €500 ($630) a month in financial assistance, citing the difficulties under 30s have in finding work because of the country's crisis. A man who has been been paying child support to his daughter for 24 years will have to do so for a little longer after a judge in southern Spain's Cádiz province ruled he would have to continue to support her until she completed her studies. The man who separated from the woman's mother nearly a quarter of a century ago had gone to court asking that...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The State of Michigan is ordering a Detroit man to pay tens of thousands of dollars, or go to prison. The reason? He owes back child support for a child that everyone agrees is not his. "I feel like I’m standing in front of a brick wall with nowhere to go," said Carnell Alexander. He says he learned about the paternity case against him during a traffic stop in Detroit in the early 90s. The officer told him he is a deadbeat dad, there was a warrant out for his arrest. “I knew I didn’t have a child, so I...
  • Statutory rape victim reportedly forced to pay child support

    PHOENIX — A man who slept with a 20-year-old woman when he was 14 — and didn’t learn he was a father until eight years later — is now being forced to pay child support, the Arizona Republic reports. Olivas, who said he was confused and going through a rough patch at that time of his life time, said the two went their separate ways after the encounter. Arizona law says a child younger than 15 cannot consent to sexual relations with an adult under any circumstance. All of it was put behind him, he thought, until two years ago...

    Some clinics rely on imported sperm to keep up with demand. However, the BFS chairman, Dr Allan Pacey, said he was "worried" that some clinics may be setting a lower bar to "get donors through the door". He said woman may be subjected to more invasive and expensive techniques if poor-quality sperm were used. There are thought to have been fewer sperm donors after the right to anonymity was removed in 2005.

    Karla and Jacob began dating in 2009 when they were 42 and 32 years old, respectively. After Karla was diagnosed with lymphoma, and “despite neither of them thinking the relationship had long-term prospects,” both agreed to have human embryos created from their gametes. These were frozen for later use because treatment would, unfortunately, destroy Karla’s fertility. Their relationship was short-lived, yet, Karla’s only chance of giving birth to her own genetic children remained the use of the frozen progeny resulting from this relationship.Jacob objected and the two went to court. This May, the Illinois judge ruled that Karla can...

    Both of Haraldson's children are in their 20s. South Dakota's child support laws only require child support payments up to age 18 in most cases, and 19 in one other instance. But Haraldson, born and raised in South Dakota, was living in Canada at the time of his divorce. There, child support laws can go on indefinitely, unless he hires a lawyer and fights. "I was told it was going to be $20,000 to $30,000 to litigate, and I'd have a 50-50 chance," Haraldson said by phone from Pierre. "I just went, 'Oh, my God.'" Haraldson, a 52-year-old computer support...

    HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Clifford Hall says he's more than happy to pay child support for his 11-year-old son. "I'm his father it's my responsibility to take care of him," Hall says. But Hall says when the amount of child support was modified no one told him. "I discovered for some reason his employer was withholding a large amount some weeks a small amount some weeks a zero amount some weeks," says Hall's attorney Tyesha Elam. "I didn't want to go to jail basically," Hall says. So Hall quickly paid almost 3 grand in back child support.

More than 20 years later, Brryan Jackson is amazed by his health, but his positive spirit and faith. Brryan’s story seemed unbelievable in 1992, when he was just 11 months old, his father, a hospital technician, injected him with HIV tainted blood. The goal was to kill Brryan so he could avoid paying child support. “Anyone in my condition would die in three months they gave me...

    The feminists have ratcheted up the laws against men to such an outrageous level that paternity fraud is not just ignored, but routinely rubber stamped by the courts. Whether one agrees with the concept of child support or not, virtually everyone can agree that jailing men for child support over children who are not theirs is morally wrong. Men are routinely sent to jail for falling behind on paying child support, even though debtors' prisons in the U.S. were mostly eliminated in the mid-nineteenth century. The family courts and laws are set up in such a way that makes it...

I said I don’t know and she said we’ll do another audit". -- Court officials admitted to 7 Action News that the calculations from the audits were wrong and that they would expedite another one. The latest audit resulted in what court officials believe is an accurate amount Campbell still owes: $6,460.08. And after so many erroneous audits, Campbell still doubts he owes that amount because for so many years he was paying for...
