Hayward Man Ordered Not To Father More Children

Friday, January 18th, 2013 at 7:25 am

A northwestern Wisconsin judge has ordered a man not to have any more children until he catches up on overdue child support payments.

Judge Eugene Harrington told 28-year-old John Butler of Hayward that he can’t father anymore children for the next two years until he catches up on his past due child support payments. Court records show he’s the father of two kids and owes $23,000. The judge also ordered that Butler must now tell women he meets that he is a convicted felon who is behind on his child support, and must disclose this information to women within three minutes of meeting any female.

The Duluth News Tribune says the 28-year-old Butler earlier pleaded guilty to felony charges of failing to pay support for more than 120 days in 2011.
