Deadbeat dad ordered to pay $26K in back child support | Crime
A Brookhaven man has been sentenced to two years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections suspended after pleading guilty to felony non-support of a child.
Attorney General Jim Hood announced, Doyce Nevada Walley, 43, owed $26,000 in child support. He has paid back more than $16,000 and will pay an extra $250 a month toward his back child support plus court costs until the amount is paid in full.
"This defendant had good jobs, and there is simply no reason for his failure to support his child," said Attorney General Jim Hood. “We will hope the threat of jail time hanging over his head will help him do the right thing.”
