This is a joke right? My ex owes over $100,000 in back child support for 4 children. He spent one night in jail. He just keeps getting away with it. I don't even show up to court anymore because the judge just let's him walk.

POSSIBLY HE'S ONE OF THESE CRADLE TO GRAVE PARASITES LEECHING OFF THE SYSTEM. THE JUDGE NEEDS TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF THIS GUY so others will be discouraged from emulating his system
