BOWLING GREEN — A father who owes $33,000 in back child support was sentenced yesterday to seven months in prison after violating the terms of his community control.
Wood County Common Pleas Judge Reeve Kelsey sentenced Jerry Watson, 35, of Corsicana, Texas, to prison after he failed to pay any child support since January.
Watson pleaded guilty to nonsupport of dependents in 2000 and was sentenced to five years of community control with the stipulation that he maintain employment and pay child support.
