Michigan Man Falsely Convicted of Murder Owes $38,000 in Child Support

A Michigan man, Larry Souter, served 13 years in prison for a murder he did not commit.  He stopped paying his ex-wife $100 dollars each week for child support when he went to prison in 1992.  Now, with interest and penalties, Souter owes more than $13,000 in back child support. Souter was released from prison this year after his lawyer discovered evidence that would have helped clear him of the charge.  Source:  WLNS-TV News, For the complete story, please click here (last visited February 4, 2006, reo).

Under the MI strict liability laws I am sure they will try to send him back up the river. With any luck the ACLU (Likine) will beat down the UnConstitutional child support laws that exist to destroy families for federal incentive funds
