This Dude With 30 Kids Wants A Break On Child Support
I'm going to file this under "humor," because it's pretty funny for everyone that's not involved.
Desmond Hatchett is swamped with child-support bills after paying 30, yes "30," of them has essentially cleaned him out. The 33 year-old (man, he works quickly) only earns minimum wage, and seeeing as how Tennesseechild support can only constitute 50% of one's salary, that means some women are getting as little as $1.49 per month, which is probably not enough to properly raise a child.
His kids' ages range from newborn to 14, so the eldest are almost old enough that they can start earning their OWN child support, instead of mooching off their dad, like a bunch of children. In 2009, he told a TV station that he was "done" having kids, but then he fathered 9 more since then. Hey, shit happens.
Hatchett also says that he knows all the birthdays and names of his children, which should make him eligible for father of the year, because that's all a good dad really needs to do.
Happy belated Father's Day, Desmond Hatchett!
