A Wisconsin father of nine who’s behind on child support payments has been ordered by a judge not to have any more children until he can show he can provide for them.
Corey Curtis, who fathered the children with six women, owes nearly $100,000 in back child support and interest, according to Racine County prosecutors.
In sentencing the 44-year-old father Monday in Racine County Circuit Court for failing to pay support, Judge Tim Boyle lamented that he didn’t have the authority to order sterilization for Curtis.
“Common sense dictates you shouldn’t have kids you can’t afford,” the judge said.
Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Sommers told the judge he did have some authority regarding Curtis’ reproduction rights. Sommers cited a 2001 Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling upholding a judge’s power to order a defendant, as a condition of probation, to not procreate again unless he can show he can financially support the child.
