Tyler Edmonds, now 16, was convicted of murder in 2004 in the shooting death of his half-sister's husband. He was 14 at the time of the slaying. He is serving a life sentence. ...Yes, he thought that he could get his child support order lifted because the boy is in prison. Nope. The court says that he has to pay.
Still, many [fathers] try to get out of paying child support.
Danny Edmonds just tried another track and failed.
It is bad enough that single mothers are raising criminals. Maybe if this mother had let the father in on the boy's life, he wouldn't have turned out to be a murderer. Now the mother has a lot of nerve to continue to collect child support while the boy is in prison. It should be called mother support, not child support.
