Man barred from having more kids ordered to pay back support

ELYRIA — Asim Taylor, the man barred from having more children as a condition of his probation on criminal nonsupport of dependents, has been ordered to pay at least $1,700 in back child support by Oct. 16.

Lorain County Probate Judge James Walther said that he approved the order Wednesday that had already been agreed to by Taylor’s lawyer and prosecutors.

Earlier this year, Walther barred Taylor from having any more children until he becomes current on the back child support obligations. The charges he pleaded guilty to late last year accused Taylor of owing nearly $100,000 in child support to four children.

Doug Merrill, Taylor’s attorney, has appealed Walther’s order, arguing that it violates the basic human right to procreate.

    If he wants to argue that his rights are violated by being ordered not to produce more kids , then simply lock him up untill ALL back child support is paid in full . Problem solved , he can spend the rest of his days in jail or prison.

      if it were only that easy. His lawyer care more about his client’s rights then he does about the kids not getting the child support.
