This guy seems like a bum of a father. He’s had nine kids with six different women and he’s reportedly neglected them financially. So a judge has ordered the guy to stop having kids until he can financially support his other children.
Obviously, the guy should stop having kids but a judge ordering it has obvious ramifications.
I’ve always been kind of a fan of the “creative” sentences of judges making people stand in front of the store they shoplifted from wearing a sign saying they shoplifted. But this gets into bad territory.
I can just imagine a judge telling a family to stop having children because of some environmental concern about their carbon footprint or something.
The Smoking Gun has the details:
Meet Corey Curtis.
The Wisconsin man, who has fathered nine children with six women, was ordered yesterday to cease procreating until he can support his numerous offspring.
At Curtis’s sentencing yesterday for bail jumping and failure to pay child support, Circuit Court Judge Tim Boyle told the 44-year-old Racine man that his frequent breeding was to be curbed as a condition of his three-year probation term.
Curtis owes about $90,000 total in back child support and interest to the mothers of his children. Pictured in the above mug shot, Curtis will have to wipe out that debt before he can add heir number ten, ruled Boyle.
