An Ohio judge ordered an admitted deadbeat dad not to have any more children until he proves he can support the four he already has. Asim Taylor, 35, was ordered not to procreate during the 5-year probation he was given after pleading guilty to nearly $79,000 in unpaid child support going back to 2009. The judge wrote his order is in the "interests of doing justice, rehabilitating the offender." The order can be lifted if Taylor proves he has the wherewithal to support another child in addition to his current brood of four. But Taylor's lawyer said the sentence was overboard because it dings him for being poor and, in effect, bans him from having sex for five years.
"It's not a question whether or not if he wants to have more kids. It's a question of whether or not the government should be telling somebody that they can or they can't," explains Attorney Douglas Merrill. "I've heard from at least one of the mother's that he does do what he can to help support the child."
